    Description

    An Interesting Indian Wars Cavalry Officer's Kepi Blue wool showing no mothing or damage but honest wear. Front exhibits a bullion officer's cavalry hat badge which shows wear and appears to be original to the hat. Brass eagle side buttons hold a gold twisted wire officer's hat cord and a leather chin strap that war obviously added to keep the hat on the officer's head while on horse back. The leather sweatband has been covered with cloth for comfort in warm climates and shows service wear, black cotton crown lining. An interesting hat that is a true survivor of the Indian Wars.
