Vermont 1st Cavalry Regimental Badge/Clip Inscribed Round Top / Gettysburg. Appears to be a field made badge fashioned from 'liberated' silverware.

 

Silver clip, 1.75 x 0.875 in., engraved 1st Vt. Cav./ Co. F, with crossed cavalry swords. Both sides crudely inscribed, Round Top / Gettysburg.

The 1st Vermont Cavalry was one of the most tested cavalry regiments in the entire war.  It participated in 76 engagements, starting with Mount Jackson in April 1862, ending at Appomattox, and including Gettysburg, the Overland Campaign, and the Siege of Petersburg. It lost 112 soldiers killed in action, 114 to disease, and another 149 who perished in Confederate prisons.
