Any assistance would be appreciated in identifying a pair of Shoulder straps that I have had sitting in a box for a couple years now. From what I have found on the forum, they are classified as modern (1937 to present). However, any additional information would be of great assistance as these are definitely not my area of expertise.

Dimensions are: 3 7/8 inches long, 1 5/8 inch wide, and the color (if not clear in the pictures) is a maroon shade. Obviously it is a Captainís rank; however, the branch is uncertain to me.

Many thanks in advace,
Ken

Justin,
I believe you are right. Just did a lookup on the Knights of Pythias and the symbol matches one of theirs.
thank you,
Ken
