1858 Cavalry Enlisted Hat Insignia

1858 Regulation enlisted cavalryman's insignia for dress (Hardee) hat and, although unauthorized for use by soldiers, later used on kepis and forage caps. This is the standard Cavalry insignia most commonly used during the Civil War. As per Army regulations (and rarely adhered to), only the company letter on the front of the forage cap and, in 1863 a Corps Badge, was authorized. Made from stamped brass with soldered brass wire hooks for attaching to hats or other items. 3 1/4" x 1 3/4" (approx).
