Egyptian / United Arab Republic (UAR) Army small metal hat insignia badge. A single-piece construction featuring the eagle and an enamel colored shield in dull red, white and black (small chip missing) with two green 5-point stars on the white band. The badge backing is a soldiered vertical metal strip forming two straight prongs. Die-stamped with relief details visible on back; not maker-marked. The badge has a slight curve particularly to the eagle's head leadin me to conclude that it is a hat and not a beret badge. Excellent detail though with light wear overall.

The UAR was a union of Syria and Egypt between 1958 and 1961, although Egypt retained use of this symbol until 1971. It may date from the 1967 Six Day War or the 1969-70 War of Attrition, perhaps also from before.
