Fine Non Dug Pre War Solid Cast Militia Hat Letter for Company G - Silver Plated
Here is a Wonderful Non-dug Pre-Civil War Cast Brass Militia Hat Letter or Company -G- Insignia ! We’ve dug several of these here in NW Arkansas, for different companies, but this is the first time I’ve seen a non dug example, and I did not realize that some of them might be silver plated. This one is cast brass as are most of the pre-war examples, and still retaining 98% of it’s original silver plate. The reverse shows all three long steel or iron pins for attachment still present and undamaged. Most of the time when we dig one of these, the silver plate is long gone and all we see on the reverse is the rusty spots where the pins were attached.
