    Very Fine Commercially Produced 14th New Hampshire Forage Cap Commercially produced forage cap issued by the State of New Hampshire retaining its original specially produced set of distinctive silver insignia and brass "simulated embroidered" hunting horn. This forage cap was worn by an unknown member of Co. A, 14th N.H. Vol. Infantry, a unit that served from September 24, 1862 to July 8, 1865. The body of the cap is in fine condition with no damage, just minor wear to the edges of the crown. Bound edge tarred leather visor showing typical crazing. The original leather chin strap measures 5/8" and is attached by means of small eagle I side buttons which remain on each end. The 1 1/4" soft leather sweatband is intact with tight original stitching. Lightly padded black polished cotton lining shows minor wear only. Very fine example of this desirable form of Civil War headgear.
