    Tall "Zouave" Style Civil War Chasseur Cap. This splendid example of an early war cap has a tall, red wool body with deep blue wool band, the front of the cap rising 3". Narrow white welting at the top of the band, up the front, back, sides, and around the crown. The condition of the wool is fine with minor moth damage. The piece lacks a chinstrap and side buttons. The original bound visor is firmly attached, deep green underside. Thin leather sweatband measures 1.75" and exhibits a 0.5" embossed decorative border. The sweatband shows edge wear, a few repaired tears and re-stitching. Bag type black silk and brown polished cotton head lining with minor wear. A classic and most attractive example of headwear from the first years of the Civil War.

    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.
