Description  US WWI IX Corps Shoulder Sleeve Insignia
Price $ 25.00

Original scarlet and blue, felt-on-felt WWI, 2 1/2" (6 cm.) diameter shoulder sleeve insignia of the IX Corps. This example 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, but some fading to the deep medium blue of the ground; scarlet remains bright. Fine example for a WWI Centennial Collection!
