What a great looking piece! This pattern of hat is known as a shako, these were very popular in the pre-Civil War era. This one would date from the 1830's to 1840's. These were worn by the well equipped well dresses militia units. On the front of the plate it has the sunburst design hat plate that is known to collectors as the model 1833 Dragoon hat plate. The dragoons were an very well equipped elite unit, like special forces of the day. In the center of the hat plate it has the applied eagle that makes the hat stand out. Above that plate it has the raised ornament that has the militia style eagle in the center. The body of the hat is made of the high grade leather and has a well worn but very attractive look. The visor of the hat is in fine shape and has the brass border edge still intact. On the sides of the hat it has the eagle style rosettes ornamenting the area where the chinstrap joins the body of the hat. When you turn the hat over you are greeted by the original sweatband. On the top of the hat it has the remnants of the maker stamping but it is no longer legible. This is a beautiful looking Dragoon style military hat!
