    Civil War Officer's Slouch Hat with Original Insignia. Body of the hat fabricated of fine quality black wool felt. bound around the edge with 1/4" black silk binding. Original gold bullion and black silk hat cord with black netting over the top of the acorn finials. Retains the original large, heavy gold bullion infantry officer's hunting horn insignia on the front with separately affixed silver numeral 1. Very fine quality embroidery on black felt background. Small black lacquer hook at the edge of the brim on one side, with stitching near the top of the crown on the same side, to allow that side of the hat to be worn folded up. The stitching has "popped" as the result of age so that the side now lies down flat. Original 2 3/4" sweat band fabricated of a smooth maroon finished oil cloth. Somewhat brittle with a few chips and has now become detached from the inside of the hat, although other than the small chips on the edge, intact and readily restored. Fine example of a Civil War US officer's slouch hat.
