Description:Smith received a patent on June 18, 1861 for a metallic false embroidered shoulder strap. This is a rare pair of captain of infantry straps. These straps are 1-5/8 inches wide and 4 inches in length. The stamped-brass, false embroidered border is 7/16 inches wide. Blue field retains good color with no wear to the surface nap. The bars are also of stamped brass.

This pair is quite attractive and in excellent condition.
