Under Badges to Distinguish Rank, the 1851 Regulations for Uniform and Dress of the Army seem to always say the same quotes regarding a Lieutenant Colonels silver insignia...it says "the same as for a Colonel, according to corps, but substituting for the eagle, a silver embroidered leaf." I have found a silver brass gilt lieutenant colonel's insignia badge found in a 1847-1851 military camp but can not find any documentation on it. The Regulations only mention it as a "silver embroidered leaf". Where can I find documentation of a silver brass gilt insignia or does it exists?
