EMBROIDERED MOUNTED RIFLEMAN’S INSIGNIA

$240.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 142-34

This insignia features an embroidered bugle with tasseled cord. The Riflemen’s insignia looks like a true bugle as opposed to the rounder French horn used by the Civil War infantry. Background is black felt which has been trimmed to very near the outside perimeter of the bullion bugle. Gold bullion thread forming the bugle remains tight and perfect with uniform dark tarnish. Back of patch is covered with original black painted/tarred cotton material. No attachment hooks. Measures approximately 2 3/8” tall x 1 ¼” wide. This was meant to be worn in an upright vertical orientation as opposed to the horizontal position the Civil War horn insignia was worn. A scarce insignia in excellent, unissued condition. [jet]
