    Regulation Civil War Louisiana Confederate Lieutenant's Kepi. Gray wool body with 1 1/8" black velvet band around the base. Single strand of gold bullion quatrefoil, designating a lieutenant by Confederate regulations, on the deeply recessed crown. The ½" tarred leather chinstrap is affixed with Louisiana State seal side buttons, backmarked Hyde & Goodrich N.O. Brown cotton lining with a 1 1/4" leather sweat band. The tarred leather visor is edged with a black oil cloth binding. The body of the hat is filled with cotton batting, typical of Civil War period Confederate headgear. Kepi shows wear commensurate with its age and use, the gray body exhibits a few small negligible holes, velvet band has faded to brown and shows wear and losses. The sweatband is broken in places but complete, visor is partially detached. A quintessential Civil War Confederate officer's kepi in untouched condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
