    Description

    Set of Civil War Infantry Officer's Gold Bullion Embroidered Insignia. 1" X 1 3/4" bullion embroidered infantry horn on black wool background, with separately affixed, false embroidered, numerals "10" in the center. Obviously worn on the front of the kepi and showing some minor signs of honest wear. The large piece, for wear on the Hardee or slouch hat, is actually one of the largest examples we've ever seen, 2 13/16" X 3 1/2". Near perfect, just showing minor signs of wear including missing two sequins on the edge of the horn bell. Brown polished cotton backing about perfect. Four small holes visible from the back where the numeral "10" was originally affixed with the impression clearly visible in the black velvet on the front. Decorative brass 'cord' around the edge. Very nice matching set of Civil War officer's insignia.
