This is a nice example of embroidered bullion cap insignia in small size, without border, intended for the lower front of an officer’s forage cap or a low crown kepi, as became stylish later in the war. This is a simple piece of insignia embroidered on dark blue cloth with a typical web fabric on the reverse to act as a stiffener and to better secure the thread, and having an open back. The patch is a simple rectangle that could fit on the front of a cap above the top of the chinstrap and below the edge of the crown. It could, of course, be used on a brimmed hat, but the size would make it particularly appropriate for a cap. The edges could be turned under, but photographs show officers wearing these simply sewn on as is.

The color on this is excellent, both the bullion embroidery and the background, and the condition is great, with no mothing or loose threads. It would display well in an insignia collection, but would be particularly appropriate in a cavalry officer’s display. [sr] [ph:m]
