The badge looks as if it was never applied to a hat. The only problem that we can find is there is only one hook on the back. The back has a small period paper label with notes in ink. It measures about 3 long and 2.5 wide.
There is some light dust/lint on the badge's surface which the sunlight makes quite evident. If you are looking for a high quality, excellent condition badge, this may be the one for you.For condition and execution, we would say this is one of the best we have seen. Our price reflects this quality. From a long time collection, it is being offered for the first time. Please take a close look at our photos and feel free to ask questions. Accompanying this badge is a tiny hand carved wooden bible that was supposedly carried into battle by the soldier who owned this badge. We felt it best to keep them together. There is an ink inscription on both sides that is difficult to read.
We can make out the date of 1865 and Greenfield Mass. Measuring about 1.5 by 1, it is in good condition, although one edge of the bible is missing. Both items are for sale for one price. Buyers may return items for any reason. Your satisfaction is our highest priority.If there's a problem, please get in touch with us BEFORE you post feedback, so that we can work it out.
