ITEM NOTES: This is from a US Naval Academy collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-DMB-VEJJX15 LHGEX7/16

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The shoulder knots show moderate wear, the back linen layer is cut on one and missing on the other, and this does not detract. They were removed from clothing and the much of the bullion detail remains intact, overall handsome patina.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
