    Seeking Photos of Federal Subdued Rank Insignia Placement Please

    Friends, I am seeking suitably clear period photos of Federal subdued rank placement please. I am placing major insignia (two oak leaves/not four) on a late war frock.

    Appreciate the leads.

    Hallo!













    I believe there would have been more in the Image Pool, but IMHO, I suspect this was NUG more a field practice, and images in the field tend to be less in number than images in the studio.

    Here is another great example showing an insignia that is oriented like a shoulder strap.

    Embarassed to say I can't find it, but there's a first sergeant who wore only the diamond on his upper arms.
