    Civil War North Carolina Confederate Officer's Slouch Hat Originally the Property of the North Carolina State Museum, Deaccessioned in 1963, Retaining the Original Ink Museum Inventory Number on the Leather Sweat Band. Buckskin colored wool felt of a form favored by General Robert E. Lee and many other Confederate officers. The 4" rolled brim is edged with a 9/16" ribbed silk binding. The crown stands 3 1/8" high with a 1" silk band around the base. The hat retains 90% of the original 1 7/8" brown leather sweatband. Absolutely original and unquestionably period. Also retains the original gold bullion officer's hat cord with acorn tassels which is stitched in place. The adjusting loop and acorns are covered with bullion netting, again a detail noted on other known Confederate officers hat cords. The sweat band shows some darkening from honest, tight and sound. There is a small hole on the left side of the brim, just behind the hat band bow and two small holes at the left rear of the crown, otherwise excellent and completely untouched. A classic Confederate officer's slouch hat with a similar example picture on page 166 of Time-Life's Echoes of Glory- Arms and Equipment of the Confederacy.

    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.
