A pair of the U.S. Marine Corps shoulder knots worn by enlisted and NCO ranks as a part of the frock coat dress uniform beginning in 1892 and continuing until 1904. The knots, as often found, have the eagles facing in the same direction, to the viewer's left. The knots have the Marine Corps buttons and the attachment hardware that would have been sewn to the shoulders of the frock coat to secure the knots in place. The brass attachment straps on the underside of the knots are maker marked with an "L" inside of a keystone. Overall excellent condition.
