This Civil War era mourning badge is approximately 3 inches in diameter and remains in excellent condition even to it's classic sewn on patent straight pin fastener (a feature of significance to the knowledgeable collector) . The style will be familiar to war era photograph enthusiasts who will recognize the type from period images of ladies and men of both military and civilian persuasion. The piece is fashioned from black crepe with a center of crimson silk over a black cotton gauze backing. (While solitary black was called for in the high or early stages of mourning, the inclusion of red or violet was consider suitable in the later mourning period so long as it was left to the mourning cockade alone.) A nice period example, hard to find on today's market but made in some quantity in the period and popularly worn in the Civil War era. Such insignia of mourning are frequently Lincoln associated by collectors as their popularity was at it's peak during the mourning period following the assassination with examples set aside and passed on as a relic of the tragedy. please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!!
