Description  US Army Bandsmanís Festoons
Price $ 35.00

Original US Army regulation issue bandsmanís chest festoons, ca. 1945-1965. Set consists of two massive spans of triple-plaited golden rayon cord (like an Indian Wars helmet suspension, only much larger), each terminating in two knotted cords, each of these with a brass aiguillette tip-to total four brass "adjutantís pencils." I spotted this pattern of cord set well-pictured and described in a reference recently, but now cannot recall where-so youíll have to take my word on the ID. The tinted rayon looks so much like light gold bullion that you have to get up close and personal to tell the difference. Scarce item, but one of limited interest as well-as is reflected in the price.
