WOW! That is the first thing that comes to mind when you see this piece of history! It is a rare original Civil War officer's hat. This is the pattern known as the U.S. model 1858 Army hat. This is the classic style you see worn by many of the Civil War officers of the North. This one was for the cavalry branch of service which is evident by the stamped brass original brass cross saber hatpin on the front of the crown of the hat. It also has the cavalry version of the hat cord which is a faded mustard color and is in fine condition. It is even still retaining the original string ties around the tassels. On one side it has the brim turned up and sewn in place. The black felt of the hat has a gorgeous black charcoal gray tone look as you can see in the pictures. When you turn the hat over it is equally as stunning. It has the entire leather sweatband in place with slight wear as you can see. The label on the inside has the gold lettering that reads "U.S. ARMY" in the banner above the eagle. Below it reads "EXTRA MANUFACTURE" and has the "4" size marking. If you have wanted a scarce original Civil War cavalry officer's hat then don't miss this beauty!
