#15275 - Double Border Smith Rigid Captain Rank Board
This is a rigid framed "Smith type" shoulder rank board for a Civil War Union Captain. Has blue velvet field to denote the Infantry. It has a "double bordered" design which added to size and "showiness" for the officer. This custom effect was forbidden after CW by new regulation, so we know this was used in CW by a Union Captain. Such a style is uncommon in many CW rank board collections. One of the brass rank bars is missing on one side as shown in pictures. Brass frame maintains it's rigid curve to fit shoulder. Some moth nips to rear cloth. Neat and desirable!
