4 HUGE OVERSIZED BRITISH MADE US ARMY CAPTAIN BARS SET!
SUPERB CUSTOM SET - THE MOST STRIKING SAMPLES THAT WILL EVER EXIST - PERIOD!
Nothing but sweet here, and rare! These are 100% top of the line made bars in every way. There are no maker marks, which is too bad, as these deserve to be credited to someone who had the audacity to make a set of rank that is NOT the typical 1" square that a set of captains bars come in at regulation size, but a full 1 & 1/8th of an inch square. All that is on the rear is a simple "E" "P" "N" "S" which is standard British maker marked at "Electro-Plate on Nickel Silver"

These ranks really stand out and are way impressive. These have also been faked at least once, by casting them as I saw on Ebay in 2008. But the originals are way so easy to spot being machine die cut and stamped out, and get a load of the extremely ornate catch assembly on the originals! Not to be duplicated!

They are impressive to look at, impressive to hold and when worn, they stand out like shields. Tank sized and tank tough quality! Even the smaller one is just a hair under the regulation size at 7/8ths of an inch, and that one is made for a wear on an overseas cap.

The posts feature English British type pin assemblies. What else can I say, except that nothing else even comes close. Matched set of three larger Captain bars, and the matching manufacture smaller captain Bar for cap wear. WOW!

You will kick yourself for having passed this one up!
