MODEL 1858 ENLISTED FORAGE CAP
A Federal issue M1858 forage cap with original brass company letter "C" and regimental number "29". This is an issued example and was turned up about 15 years ago in Massachusetts. Cap has blue wool body with correct leather chinstrap held in place with cuff size general service eagle buttons. Liner is complete as is sweatband.
Cap is in very good condition. Color remains vivid. There are a few scattered insect nips to body. Stitching is intact with the exception of about 1.5-inches on left side of sweatband. Brass insignia appears original to cap. Difficult to upgrade this one.
