An Amazing Pair of Smith’s Patent Shoulder Straps – Colonel of Infantry!
You can look at Civil War shows and auctions for the past 10 years and not find another pair of Smith’s patent Colonel’s straps. Our late friend, Jim Frasca, had a Cavalry pair of Smith’s, but when we showed him this pair, he had not seen an Infantry Colonel’s made by Smith… they are rare!

What makes this pair really great for display is the outstanding condition of the blue velvet and the untouched patina of the brass. One strap has a portion of the cloth backing missing. These straps were actually used, and did not just sit in a box.

Truly our favorite pair of straps from our collection.
