A very decorative, and scarcer insignia for use on the 1895 Officer’s undress uniform coat.
These state seal insignia for use on the 1895 coat, are not a pair; but very close (one a bit brighter gilt wouldn’t be noticeable on uniform collar, the other was a pin back (the pin is broken). These are scarce insignia, and in all the years I have seen this pattern uniform offered for sale, I have not had the opportunity to purchase one.
Approximately 1 1/4 inches wide, these two pieces match up perfectly in shape, and size.
There was no history with these, but never-the-less, worthy of any uniform/ insignia collection.
