This is a fantastic set! It is an original cased set of high grade Engineer officer’s epaulets. These are as fancy as you will find and at one time would have adorned the dress uniform of a high ranking Civil War engineer with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. They have a gorgeous tone all over. The gold washed brass body of the epaulet is edged with golden bullion fringe. The center of the epaulet has the applied insignia with the silver "Castle” center that stands for the Engineers. The very center has the applied embroidered silver leaf pattern. This lets us know that they were for the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Each board has the high dome style eagle buttons that affix the epaulet onto the shoulder of the uniform. This is the high grade pattern that is custom designed to fit the right and left side individually and are not interchangeable like the lesser grade of epaulets. The epaulets come encased in an original tin carrying case. The case has been repainted in more modern times with black paint and now it displays quite well. The handle is on the top and the closure tab is present as well. On the inside it has the original red lining as well as the paper label and 1858 date. This is scarce and exquisite piece of Civil War Engineer's history!
