UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS TRUMPETER BRASSARDS 1908-1912 - FOR THE FIELD KHAKI AND DRESS WHITE UNIFORMS – LIKE NEW UNISSUED – EXCELLENT CONDITION:  These original US Marine Corps Trumpeter Brassards were  provided in two styles – one with the background to match the newly introduced Khaki Field Uniforms and the other for the White Dress Uniforms.  Due to the relatively small size of the Marine Corps, and the few musicians, these specialty brassards are relatively scarce.  Limited in use from 1908 to 1912, these brassards were known as the “First Pattern” and were subsequently replaced in the course of new uniform regulations.  

These brassards were embroidered with a finished bugle on both sides of each piece of cloth, so the brassard could be sewn to either sleeve of the uniform, oriented with the bell of the bugle forward, and there would be no need to produce separate brassards for each sleeve.  

These are a nice early 20Th Century insignia to add to your Marine Corps display. 


USMC 1908-1912 TRUMPETER BRASSARD – KHAKI FIELD UNIFORM:  A heavier weight khaki brassard embroidered with a light blue bugle in excellent condition, showing no evidence of use, wear or soiling.  $45


USMC 1908-1912 TRUMPETER BRASSARD – WHITE DRESS UNIFORM:  A lighter weight, beige brassard embroidered with a gold colored bugle.  In unissued condition with no no evidence of use, wear or soiling, however the base material is quite thin and there is a small split where the material was folded.  This does not affect the overall appearance, nor does it affect the embroidery.  $45
