I have 2 Shoulder straps from mid-1860's from the knights templar/ Freemasons. They are 2 different straps they are not a complete set. I bought these at a Civil war Expo just outside of Washington D.C. They came srtaight from the Templar group that these came from. I was told that they wear these on their uniforms and were popular during the civil war. I took them to a well known person who specializes in shoulder straps he agreed they are from the mid-19th century. I do not know anything about the knights templar or masons so i cannot answer any questions about those organizations. i'm selling these for $55.00 thats half of what i payed for them. i prefer paypal but i will accept money orders. If you use paypal shipping is free just add the paypal fee if you pay by money order please add 5.00.
