    Worn on the Dress Coat for all ranks from 1855 through 1871 and for Generals through 1889. In 1872 all ranks, except for Generals, went to the Shoulder Knot (Russian Knot). These epaulettes include the attachment devices, but Rank Insignia and Regimental Disk are extra. The regimental disk must be custom ordered and takes about 12 weeks.

    Junior Grade Officer epaulettes have 1/8" diameter fringe. The rank insignia on each epaulette is: 2nd Lieutenant - no rank insignia and 1st Lieutenant - 1 bar.

    Company Grade Officer epaulettes have 1/4" diameter fringe. The rank insignia on each epaulette is: Captain - 2 bars.

    Medical Officer epaulettes are identical to the Line Officer Epaulettes except they have the gold Wreath and silver M.S. letters in Old English embroidered in the crescent. Different diameters of fringe (and rank insignia) designated the various ranks of surgeon. Epaulettes as worn by Assistant Surgeon (Captain Rank- 1/4" fringe diameter). Two silver bars (per strap) need to be ordered to compete the rank structure. Junior Asst Surgeon (First Lieutenant) with 1/8" fringe diameter is also available (one pair of silver bars should be ordered).
