ade in three stripes of the stylized "Arched" pattern, these chevrons are completely unique and recognizable from the Civil War period.
Note that our chevrons are made from custom dyed wprsted herringbone twill tape. Although the vertical rib tape was still in use, it was predominantly a carry over from an earlier period. In addition, our chevrons clean finished at the point and outside edge. We have seen reproductions offered in a raw edged mohair braid which is highly prone to raveling and fraying. While I do not doubt that raw edged chevrons may have existed, I have yet to find one that was arsenal or contractor produced.
Please note that his item is also for sale on our ebay store, but with the very substantial ebay surcharges added. Customers are welcome to shop there, but we are offering the option to save.
