1832-71 Civil War era US Army Officer's Gold Epaulets

From 1832 to 1851, Army Officers (except Infantry) were to wear gold Epaulets with the Full Dress Uniform. Infantry Officers were to wear Silver Epaulets. In 1851 the color for Infantry was changed to Gold also. Our beautiful reproduction Gold Epaulets are available in three different diameters of gold bullion (also called "fringe") for the different ranks; Second Lieutenants thru General in Chief from 1851 thru 1871. Generals only after 1871 until 1889. Starting in 1872 officer ranks below General were to use the Shoulder Knots. Attaching Hardware and instructions included. (Imported)

Rank insignia are available at extra cost and are in stock. Supplied loose for you to install. The ranks of Second Lieutenant and Major do not have any insignia on the Epaulets- the fringe diameter designates the rank.

Regimental Discs are available at extra cost and take about 6-8 weeks to get from the maker.(Imported) If you order these, specify Branch of Service and Regimental number desired.
