    Great Untouched Forage Cap with Original 5th Corps Badge Untouched original in all respects, its dark blue wool body is in fine condition and shows genuine use in the field. Stitched to the crown is a 1st Division 5th Corps Badge, unquestionably original to the cap. Missing chin strap but side buttons are intact, tarred leather visor is excellent. On the crown is sewn an original, hand cut, red wool 1st Division, 5th Corps badge. The sweatband is in place and shows honest service wear, brown polished cotton lining fully intact. When the cap emerged from rural Pennsylvania auction in 1993, it had a verbal history of being used by an unknown soldier of the 118th Pa. Vol. Infantry but that history has not been substantiated. A very fine example of a classic cap with corps badge.
