Description  US WWI 42nd Division Shoulder Sleeve Insignia
Price $ 25.00

Original scarlet, yellow, and blue, felt-on-felt on a khaki woolen ground WWI shoulder sleeve of the 42nd Division. This outstanding, somewhat crude example measures 1 3/4" x 3 1/2" (4 cm. x 8.5 cm.) and still bears impressions of the stitches which affixed it to a uniform, as well as a few snippets of that thread. Condition is excellent, with no mothing, fading, or soiling; colors remain bright. Douglas MacArthur made a name for himself commanding this AEF division in combat.
