#15175 - Patented 1861 Smith 1st Lieutenant Rank Boards
This is a pair of original Smith rigid frame rank shoulder boards for a first lieutenant of the Union infantry. There is some dust and moth nipping to the center fields. The backs have amazingly well preserved black cloth with bold red patent information printed: "J.A. Smith/ PAT JUNE 18, 1861, 15 Dutch Street, NY." These metal bordered rank boards held their shoulder arch shape and were more durable in field than plain cloth & wire. These come in a free Riker case for safe & easy future display. A MUST for those collecting the major Civil War rank boards.
