ORIGINAL 19TH CENTURY OFFICERS FORAGE CAP GOLD BULLION CHIN CORD – NICE COMPLETE SPECIMEN IN EXCELLENT CONDITION:  Of the style worn by US Army officers from the mid-1800’s through the end of the century, this Officer’s gold bullion Forage or Kepi Cap Chin Cord cords has survived in excellent condition.   

The full length cords show no wear, with no fraying or separation as is often seen, with the correct adjustment knots intact and functional.  The bullion has a minimal amount of the expected tarnish, and there is still quite a bit of glint and sparkle remaining.  This set will display quite well and would be a very good addition to any Civil War, Indian War or Spanish American officer’s grouping.     

These officer’s cords, due to the nature of the bullion, appear to have survived in far fewer numbers than did the enlisted men’s cords, and examples in the condition of this set are scarce indeed.  (0213)  $250
