Description  USA M1902 Officer’s Chinstrap
Price $ 55.00

Original gold lace-and-leather chinstrap, M1902 for US Army officer’s “bellcrown” fulldress cap, in excellent condition. This example is constructed of ˝ inch (1.4 cm.) gold lace backed with kipskin and furnished with a brass affixing grommet on each end. With twin slides, this type fits all sizes. This piece is NOS from an old NYC firm, unissued and lovely. Stitching is intact, and patination is handsome. I don’t know about you, but it’s still hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that the 1902 Uniform Regulations are more than a century old now!
