    Description

    Scarce Gold Seventeenth Corps "Arrow" Badge. Emblematic of "swiftness...and its destructive powers" the arrow was chosen as the insignia of the 17th Army Corps in March 1865. Photographic evidence shows it rapidly became a popular symbol among all ranks of the corps and today authentic examples are much sought after, such as this gold example. Measuring 2" long by 0.30" wide, the device is solidly made and has its full t-bar closure pin on the reverse. Condition of this rarity is excellent and bright and it is accompanied by a brief history of the corps.
