1858 Dragoon Officer's Hat Insignia
Item #: FDR21-363
Here is a cool, hard to find, embroidered hat insignia for the Dragoon / Cavalry officer's hat. The nice gold bullion sabers on the felt oval have aged nicely. Its a remarkable piece. It also retains the tin backing which made it easy to remove if desired. It measures approximately 2.5" by 3.5". This is the same type seen on page 196, figure 462 in Campbell / O'Donnell's hat insignia book.
