Beautiful Officer's Grade Civil War Artillery Forage Cap with Eagle "A" Buttons
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a beautiful original piece of Civil War headgear. This is the wonderful looking high quality commercially produced forage cap from the Civil War. It is constructed of fine quality deep blue wool that has an aged slight green tint. The wool still has a gorgeous tone all over with just a few minor moth holes. The hat is 5-1/2 inches high at the front , which is correct for Civil War construction. It has the thin leather chin strap fixed to the cap by two eagle buttons on the side. The eagle buttons have the "A" in the center of the shield which lets us know that it was worn by an artillery officer and not an enlistedman. The visor is bound and shows just enough crazing to the tarred finish to give it a used but not abused look. Inside the hat itself it has the original crown polished cotton lining. The original 2-1/8th inch leather sweatband is present. This is your chance to own a classic Civil War artillery officer's forage cap in fine condition.
