Indian Wars Period Forage Cap Circa 1880's
Item #: AA3522
This is a enlisted man's forage cap from the Indian Wars period, circa 1880's. The blue wool is in good condition, but does have moth damage around the perimeter of the hat. A 1 1/2" sweatband is completely intact. All stitching is strong throughout the kepi. The two general service buttons are two piece design and have a EXTRA SCOVILLS & Co. back mark. The black leather chin strap, black tarred visor and brown leather sweatband are in remarkable condition. There is no makers label in the kepi. On the top of the kepi is a Civil War period brass company letter F. The 1" brass letter has a nice light chocolate patina. This kepi is in overall good condition, and will make a good representative of a late Indian Wars soldier's head gear.
