Early American Headgear and Shoulder Paddles


Recommended Posts

I'm slowly building up my early American headgear and shoulder knot display with two recent additions of a visor and a set of knots.

 

I obviously have a passion for those early knots! Hope you enjoy.

Just picked up an early set of paddles in blue for the 1st Inf Regt. Now I have matching sets for this regiment.

Thanks Daniel. I love my uniforms and visors from this era, but the knots/paddles are still the most enticing things for me. My focus keeps drifting to them over anything else.

I'm interested in anything to do with the 17th Infantry Regiment, and or the 7th Infantry Division and would be interested in buying, trading, or just talking about any items related to these units!
