This style insignia was introduced in 1905 for the M1902 Enlisted Man's dress blue uniform. In 1905 (or there abouts) the Army switched from the larger 1902 style with crossed muskets to this smaller size with crossed Krags. Typically these are pin back for the collar and screw back for the dress cap. I encounter these reverse tab affixing types frequently, but I'm not sure if they're for the collar or cap. I guess they could be either.
