    Description

    Civil War Forage Cap Civil War Forage Cap with extensive moth damage to the wool body, but is essentially complete. The crown clearly shows the ghost of a 2nd Corps badge. Original leather chin strap with small eagle side buttons, visor shows crazing in the tarred finish. Original black leather sweatband exhibiting a few areas of insect damage, has its full brown polished cotton lining showing moderate wear and a 1" hole. The forage cap is complete and would certainly benefit from a careful restoration.
