Completely intact, M1858 pattern blue wool forage cap with maker's size label inside the crown. Label reads G. & S. No. 3. N.Y. Two general service buttons attached with original thread hold chin strap firmly in place. Leather sweatband is solid and protects a brown glazed cotton lining. In spite of minor moth nips, this is as fine a forage cap as one could hope to find.
Excellent condition with a few negligible moth nips and one 3/4" narrow rent located behind top of crown; otherwise as unissued.
