Sterling WWI "War Eagles" Colonel Rank Set by Balfour
A set of rank insignia for an Army Colonel, manufactured in sterling silver and marked "LGB" for the L.G. Balfour Company. The insignia is pin back with side loading catches. The design of the insignia is referred to as depicting a "War Eagle", since the heads of the eagles face towards the points of the arrows that they clutch rather than the laurel leaves. Very good condition.
