Shoulder Strap Sale: We are overstocked on certain bullion shoulder straps and are offering them at a sale price. Visit our overstock page to see if your branch/rank combination is listed.
Please note: We try very hard to maintain a realistic stock of all rank and branch combinations in nylon (e.g., we do not stock CW3 Infantry, etc). Also, while we try to keep a robust stock of gold bullion shoulder straps, these items may take up to 3 months to manufacture. We will contact you if we do not currently have the item you desire in stock.
Photo comparison: should you buy Gold Bullion or Nylon?
Bullion items are made of copper wire thread that is plated with either silver or gold. Unfortunately, due to the metal content, the silver-plated bullion will tarnish rather quickly. The gold-plated rank will also tarnish, as the underlying copper "bleeds" though the gold over time as a dissimilar metal. To lessen the tarnish, limit the uniform's exposure to air and humidity.> We recommend storing your uniform in a Premium Garment Bag with Intercept® Lining.

I am branching Field artillery and I couldn't find a field artillery shoulder strap under the women's uniform products.

Assuming kept enclosed in a lined container that you sell.Question by: Jeff on Mar 26, 2017 6:55:00 PMOur bullion straps are gold plated, and to lessen the tarnish we recommend being vigilant about storing them in the free intercept lined case we send with each pair of straps. Although this does not answer your question as far as a specific time frame goes, hopefully, this next bit of information helps! We like to keep 1 strap of each type here, even for ones we only sell once every year or so. That said, we have some straps here that are about a year old and they have not tarnished. We do not keep our straps in the intercept lining while in inventory.
We strongly encourage you to wear nylon when working in humid or moist climates. As the moisture will rapidly increase the risk of the bullion tarnishing.
