This excavated brass epaulette is in very good condition and was recovered several decades ago in the area of Wilderness, VA by local Virginia relic hunter Henry Foster. Epaulettes were worn on the shoulders of enlisted men and were designed to protect the soldier from saber strikes. Many were tossed by soldiers due the the fact that they were shiny, thereby making them easy targets. This solid epaulette is complete with the exception of its rear attachment bar. The brass has aged into a very pleasing dusty chocolate brown patina. There are no loose components, cracks, bends, or repairs. This epaulette will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War uniform, campsite, or general relic collection.
