    Scarce Civil War Staff Officer's Chevrac or Saddle Pad. Dark blue wool with 1" wide border or gold bullion tape and ½" wide black leather edging, also a 1½" wide black leather reinforcing strip at the top. The lower corner on each side with a 2" x 2" blue wool patch with exquisitely embroidered gold bullion eagle with shield and riband. The back of the pad is lined with heavy black oil cloth. Excellent overall condition, just minor spots of mothing scattered about., a few chips on the leather edging, and some areas of fraying on the bullion tape. All relatively minor and the piece remains very attractive and impressive. A rare piece of Civil War officer's horse gear with few surviving specimens.
