    Description

    US M1858 Cavalry Enlisted Man's Dress Hardee Hat Fine condition untrimmed "Hardee Hat". This example of the enlisted man's Pattern 1858 Army Hat is seldom found in such a superb state. The original black felt body is virtually unblemished and without any rips or fraying. The double row of reinforcing stitching at the edge of the 3" wide brim shows almost no wear and the ¼" wide black ribbon at the base is sound and in place. Inside, the crown of the hat retains its full glazed paper lining with a gold embossed patriotic eagle design having "U. S. Army" in a riband above and "Extra/ Manufacture" below, with a size number "3." Leather sweatband measures 2 1/2" and shows minor wear. The hat is untrimmed but there are indications insignia was at one time affixed to the front.
