The color inside the border is blue, the color indicating Infantry during the Civil War era and later. It his hand embroidered, made from wool fabric and bullion thread surrounding a stiff cheesecloth core. It measures 4 5/8" x 1 7/8", and is just over 1/4" thick.

There is some moth damage to the back, and overall oxidation, however it still presents beautifully, with a lovely patina. A very nice upmarket example that would be home in any Civil War insignia collection.
