#15412 - Smith type Major Rank Board Cavalry & Infantry
This is a cool single Smith type rigid brass-frame rank board for a Union major. As such it holds a preformed shoulder curve to its cast brass. There is only one oak leaf. The cloth field is for cavalry. However, the side of the cloth with no oak leaf is lifted up and amazingly reveals a blue Infantry field underneath. Did the troop switch services? Or, since these were custom order, did the manufacturer take a shortcut to fill the order? Neat variant. These type of boards were forbidden by army after Civil War.
