Original Civil War forage cap insignia, in this case the company, battery, or troop letter “H.” Of stamped solid brass, this piece appears unissued, and is complete with sweated-on affixing wires. Although heavily patinated (I doubt it has ever been polished since its manufacture), it is definitely non-dug. It measures 1 inch (2.5 cm.) at its widest, by one inch (2.5 cm.) tall. W else can you buy a Civil War cap insignia this cheaply?
