I would think that the edging was produced using a specialized tool. It would be something like a slitter that you would pull the piece of leather through and cutting dies put the edge on.

Re: Does anybody know what this is?

Looking at the edges, none appear to be designed for attaching this to any type of pole. The size is correct for a scarf of bandana of some kind. As a kid I remember my mother having a silk head scarf that was a copy of Napoleon's Guard Imperial's flag.

Think the "99"actually maybe a "66" and is the size. The 4E would be 4th squadron, never seen it scratched in like that before. If the squadron is marked where is the regimental stamp?
