    Description

    Pristine and Elegant Major General's Shoulder Straps. With treble rich borders and near perfect condition, these rare Civil War era shoulder straps for a Major General would be difficult to surpass. The straps measure a substantial 2" wide by almost 4¾" long and appear practically untouched. The tops each contain two silver stars measuring ¾" from tip to tip, embroidered on a perfect black velvet background and surrounded by one wide and two narrow rows of gold embroidery, all surrounded by a spun wire border. The brown polished cotton underside is likewise near perfect. A near impossible rank to find in any condition, this pair would be a stunning addition to any insignia collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
