    Extremely Rare Stamped Silver Eighteenth Corps Badge by Known Supplier. Shown in the Civil War advertisements of B. T. Hayward, a "Manufacturing Jeweller" in New York City, is this distinctive corps badge, an example of which is in the collection of the Milwaukee Public Museum and also pictured in Stanley Phillips groundbreaking book. It measures 1.25" x 1.25" and consists of a quatrefoil with a recessed foliate center filled with a hardened red wax, designating the First Division of the 18th Corps. In the center of the badge is an intricate six pointed star-like device. Condition is sound with the original t-bar pin and about 80 percent of the red wax center intact. A desirable, well-authenticated badge from the hard fighting Army of the Potomac, complete with an overview of the 18th Corps.
