Original US 1884 pattern gold lace "half chevron" (normal people call it a service stripe) for Artillery Service in War, in unissued condition. Distinct from the standard service stripe of gold lace on Army Blue uniform cloth, the war half-chevronís lace was mounted on the branch-of-service color. This example is in mint condition, with no mothing and only slight patination of the lace. See U of Nebraskaís reprint of the CC&GE, "US Army Uniforms & Equipment, 1889," pp. 172 & 180 for specs and illustration. Nice example for an insignia collection.
