Product Description

This is another nice item being offered, it is an excavated brass shoulder scale which was lost or discarded by a cavalryman or artilleryman. It is in two pieces with the pan measuring approximately 4” x 3”. It was recovered years ago from the Gettysburg battlefield.

Many cavalrymen and artillerymen wore these adornments on their shell jackets – it was thought that these brass scales would protect the soldier from saber blows, but rarely did this occur. This piece has a great untouched patina to the brass.
