    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
