  CIVIL WAR BAND MASTER'S BATON WITH PRESSED BRASS EAGLE ON A SCULPTURAL FINIAL, TWISTED CORD & TASSELS, AND A BRASS ACORN TIP
Dimensions (inches): 49.5" long w/ 3" diameter finial
Description:
This wonderful band master’s staff of the Civil War period is the only one I have been able to thus-far acquire, despite years of searching. With a beautiful and sculptural, brass, flatted mushroom cap displaying a federal eagle, and the typical crisscrossing cord and tassels, this is a great example of wartime production. Made of ash, at the bottom of a long, tapering, brass cap is a fine, acorn-shaped tip.

Condition: Original and exceptional. Minor wear to cord.
