"False Embroidered" Officer's Rank


Recommended Posts

Here's a whole handful of mostly blouse-sized Capt pairs. All of them are sterling with "C" clasps but none have a mfg mark on them. There are twelve matched sets and two loose singles.

 

I think this is probably enough for now.

While digging out the coffin-style rank, I came across this pair ot faux embroidered rank that I couldn't find earlier. These look almost identical to the pair Craig posted above. These are shirt-sized and they have the same markings on the nuts as the ones Craig posted.

Was there no rank of 2nd Lieutenant before World War I?

 

No

 

The butter bar did not enter use until around 1917. Before that you were the guy in the Officer's uniform with no rank insignia.
