Description

The Artillery Corps was formed in 1901, and adopted this insignia minus the shell in its center.  A year later the Coast Artillery Corps was established and added the shell, while the Field Artillery were prescribed the same short stubby cannons, but with a wheel at the center.

This one piece gilt example was made with sew-on loops.  It is unmarked.

38mm.

Fine- excellent condition. A minute chip in the enamel, visible with the aid of a jeweler’s loop.
