Embroidered silver bullion strap 7" long from tip to edge of crescent, 1 - 3/4" wide, with 3" bullion. Strap is backed with white linen and has one buttonhole at the pointed tip. Crescent is sequin covered. Fringe is 2-layered with larger bullion coils over narrow twisted strands, the larger coils having a gold tone. Within the crescent is sewn a large 8-pointed star of sequins and narrow bullion coils, somewhat muted gold in tone. The reverse has 2 inked inscriptions, neither fully legible. One seems to be a price, with "doll" visible. The other, near the tip, may be a letter code or initials. CONDITION: Excellent. Nice color. Sequins in place. Reverse very good as well. Secured on a flat board by a plain period button placed at the point with shank through the buttonhole and secured by a wire. A very scarce example. The length of the strap suggests a wartime date, with later straps tending to be shorter to compensate for wider collars.
