    Description

    Beautiful Civil War General's Chasseur Style Cap with Brigadier General's Cap Insignia General Officers Grade Chasseur Style Cap. Original gold bullion embroidered wreath with silver bullion star on a blue velvet background sewn on the front. The fine blue wool body rises to 3 7/8" at the front and shows just a few minor moth holes, the band constructed of deep blue velvet reflective of the velvet collar and cuffs seen on General's frock coats. In lieu of a chinstrap the piece exhibits a 1/4" wide toned gold band held fast with staff eagle buttons - one detached. The wide unbound visor measures 2" from the body, excellent, just showing minor crazing. Fine leather sweatband measures 1 5/8", shows areas that have come unstitched. Black silk- faced brown cotton lining is partially detached and silk is fragmented. Black glazed crown exhibits a partial Wm Horstmann Bros & Co Philadelphia makers name. Very fine example of this rare and desirable form of Civil War General officer's headgear.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
