My question is about confederate rank insignia. Was insignia in the 1860's an embroidered patch? I know on the reenactors uniform it's embroidered. Was the insignia a pin in the 1860's or patch. I'm into the civil war I collect things. I have a confederate dbl breasted frock coat. Also have the gereral's stars does anyond know where I can get the plain oak leaf design that goes around the stars?
