Brass and Nickel Officer Gorgets German Silver or Brass Gorgets
Either the nnickel (german silver) or brass gorget pictured with the black twill tape and the two brass buttons.The widest part across is just over 5.0 inches and the drop/depth is about 4.5 inches overall.. They were worn by military officers as part of their uniforms. The last remant of armor. The local militia sometimes used them as their only mark of rank. These symbols of rank and esteem were presented to native leaders as well, and gradually lost their official status and became a standard trade item.  Some were plain while others bore a royal animal or motif. These gorgets, made from nickel silver (german), follow the standard and are offered in a plain style. They are authentic to the Revolutionary War and French & Indian War periods.
