As we consider 19th century USMC Officer epaulettes, a review of the following to compare those shown with your post seems appropriate:

I did find remnants of the lid having been named at one point. A few letters, maybe enough to match. Anyone have an officer register pre-Span-Am?

Brig,
I have 1870's and 1880's registers, let me know if I can help.

Mike

thanks guys, have received lots of messages with offers to help. Have a few possible names, going to have to reexamine it. There wasn't much to work with, but considering the low number of officers in those days, worth a peek
