    Civil War M1858 US Infantry Enlisted Man's Forage Cap with Original Insignia. Blue wool body with some scattered moth holes and a small repair at the back. One wrinkle/bend at the back of the crown in the cardboard stiffener. Stands 3 1/4" high at the front. What appears to be the original insignia on top with infantry hunting horn and regimental numeral 1. 5/8" leather chinstrap with brass buckle, leather loop and eagle side buttons. Bound tarred leather visor. Interior with 1 5/8" maroon Moroccan leather sweatband, very good. Embossed maker's logo in top of crown, "J. C. Jones / Army And Navy Goods / Fortress Monroe". The black silk lining is quilted on the crown as well as the sides. Nice representative Civil War forage cap, and the only example by this maker / dealer we've ever seen.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
