Exceptionally rare and outstanding pair of Civil War Marine brass shoulder scales. If that were not rare enough, they are still housed in the original box and packaging! These are absolutely pristine and complete. Marine shoulder boards differed from the standard shoulder boards in that there are 8 rows of scales rather then 7. There is also an attachment under the pan to allow for the attachment of the green fringe which was unique to the Marines. Both are complete with the thumb screws as well. Extremely rare and unique item!
