    Hi, Pammy !

    Put on the one that you like best, and hang on to the other in case you do find another sword.
    I actually like the brown too, but the green one matches the grip material................



    Regards, Steve.

    i still cant make my mind up as to witch looks better but iam thinking the darker co co color one does?


    The one that is on there now, the dark one, looks real nice to me, as it seems
    to match the grip material ! ( My computer screen is on 100% brightness,
    but is still not bright enough....... ! )
    Is the 'brown' one actually 'red' ? ! ?

    I'm wondering if the colour of the tassel has something to do with what branch
    an Officer was in ? I don't know a whole lot about them................







    Regards, Steve.

    The dark brown tassel is the correct one for your sword. The lighter brown tassel is for Army swords of all officer ranks after they discontinued the multi-colored rank designation tassels mid-war. The Navy tassels were always just the dark brown. Jim
