Fantastic grouping of the effects of Capt. Albert Cummings who served in both the 1st and 5th New Hampshire Infantry during the Civil War.  His war record is stellar!  This is part of a larger grouping which was broken up years ago and sold to several collectors and dealers.  A large amount of records are included as well as notes from prior owners.  This grouping consists of his super fine officer sword belt rig, TWO sets of rank straps (Lt. and Captain, both the RARE small type worn by officers in the field), a fine gold and enamel Corps badge pin, a kepi hat device, an oval rank bar as worn on dress epaulettes , a wartime carte de visite image and his original New Hampshire discharge certificate.  A great grouping with all the history you could ever ask for!
