    Description

    PAIR OF EXTREMELY RARE CONFEDERATE GENERAL GOLD BRAID COLLAR INSIGNIA. A 1 by 3¼" oval design. The outer wreath has 3 five-pointed starts enclosed. The central star is larger than the outer stars. The background is a light wool broadcloth on a pasteboard backing. These insignia were acquired at the same time a Georgia tailor's archive came on the market that contained the original pattern for General Howell Cobb's Confederate uniform. These insignia are possibly from that archive. This is a rare opportunity for a museum or advanced collector to obtain these insignia.

    Provenance: Steve Mullinax, Author of Confederate Belt Buckles and Plates
    William Turner, Author of Confederate Faces

    Letters of Authenticity from William Turner and Les Jensen accompany this lot.
