On the sleeves the eagles should face forward.
The large eagle & crowns were worn on the forage cap and cuffs of officers uniforms, smaller ones on the epaulets. Both sizes came in left and right facing eagles.
Hi Lindsay,Do you know why one of your cap badge eagles is facing the other way? Are sleeve eagles the same size? It was my understanding that they faced the same way too.

Hello I am wondering if you are adding to your collection of cuff links. I have some eagle and crown gold ones I came across today at a thrift store. Your museum has been great to learn from.
