US Contract Forage Cap
This is an original forage cap. An example of basic Union Soldier headgear. This particular example has a nice look. The wool body shows some wear, repair and has a few moth holes. The bill is solid and original and most of the original sweatband is present. The sweatband shows wear. The diameter of the flat round top part is 5 3/4". The lining however is reproduction lining. Also the chinstrap is a reproduction. When I got the cap it was missing the lining and the buttons and chinstrap. I had restoration performed - including the reproduction lining, original eagle side buttons and a reproduction chinstrap.
With this one you have a solid looking forage cap. SOLD
