Rifles First Lieutenant Shoulder Strap

Courtesy of Dr. Howard Lanham
This strap is an artificially aged fake of modern manufacture. The field is raised relative to the border and the entire strap is much thicker than most original Civil War period pieces. The bottom is finished a leather with the gold letters reading P.Tait, Limerick. Although Tait made uniforms during the period no original Civil War straps are known to have the maker's name in gold. What some people will do to make a buck!
