This insignia features an embroidered bugle with tasseled cord. The Riflemen’s insignia looks like a true bugle as opposed to the round French horn used by the Civil War infantry.

This piece appears unissued as the condition is very fine. The background of black velvet retains it knap. Gold bullion thread forming the bugle remains tight and perfect with a uniform dark tarnish. Bright sequins remain in place at the mouth piece and bell of the trumpet. A thin “coil” of brass forms an edge around the entire oval piece.

Back of patch is covered with original black wool sewn around the parameter. Several small moth holes show that the piece is constructed upon an oval piece of tin. Two brass attachment loops remain.

Measures nearly 3” tall x 2.25” 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 condition.   [jet] [ph:L]
