Description  US M1881 Inf. Officer’s Overlay
Price $ 45.00

Original M1881 Infantry officer’s frontplate overlay consisting of a federal shield and crossed rifles, mounted atop the generic Staff-style plate to render a branch-specific, two-piece officer’s plate. This example is of high-quality manufacture and still exhibits much original finish—though a faint shadow, as well as two piercings, indicates the prior presence of a regimental numeral. These officers’ overlays are uncommonly encountered as separate pieces.
