HARDEE HAT. Sale Pending   #BC7580. From Dirty Billy. Size 7 5/8 (measures 24“ around the sweatband). Has been worn a few times but remains in excellent physical condition all round. Ha a couple very light marks on the bottom of the brim but certainly nothing major.

U.S. FORAGE CAP. #BP6709. This is an older repro and the maker is unknown. We originally thought it was from sutler row but there’s enough hand sewing in this cap to cast some doubt to that (given that way back, 99% of caps on sutler row were all machine sewn). Nonetheless, this forage cap has seen a lot of service and shows wear. There are a couple moth holes in the body plus some damage to the crown welting (the reed is broken in the back in two places). Also, the leather elements have some scuffs & light surface cracks. Meantime, the cap features a single thickness black leather visor (a little mis-shapened from age), a two-piece black leather chin strap (that has some surface cracks) plus two U.S. general service eagle side buttons. Inside we have a brown cotton lining and a hand sewn dark brown leather sweatband. There are remnants of a paper label on the hand sewn crown lining as well as a stenciled “C” and “19”. Rounding out this forage cap is a 3rd Division 4th Corps badge sewn to the left side (easily removed if needed).

U.S. PRIVATE PURCHASE KEPI. #BP1255. Private purchase style kepi made in dark blue wool broadcloth. Size 7 3/4 - 7 7/8 (measures 23 3/8“ around the sweatband). Has been worn but remains in nice condition. Bound black enameled visor plus black enameled chin strap w/ stamped brass U .S. eagle side buttons. Inside we have a high gloss black lining ( could be cotton, silk, or a silk-like fabric) and a black hand sewn leather sweatband. The crown lining is a red gloss fabric w/ decorative stitching. There was printing on the crown lining but it’s now illegible. The visor has surface cracks from age but there is no peeling or flaking. Maker unknown but definitely high end work.

AUGUSTA GUARDS CAP. #BT8822. Size 7 3/8 (measures 23“ around the inside of the hat). Has been worn but remains in good condition. Dark blue wool body w/ sky blue piping up the front & rear body seams as well as around the crown edge. Has the brass letters “A” and “G” on the crown.

Rounding out this cap is a crescent cut black leather visor, black leather chin strap plus stamped brass Virginia state seal side buttons. Has a previous owners name printed (small print) on the liner crown - but we have blurred that out just for the photo. Maker unknown but probably sutler row.

U.S. JEAN WOOL FORAGE CAP. #BC8172. Made by Jason Wickersty in a size 7 1/2 to 5/8 ( measures 24” around the sweatband). Worn just a couple times but remains in great condition. No brass and never had any attached. Has the smaller 5 1/2” diameter pasteboard crown. Inside we have a brown cotton lining finished off with a hand sewn black leather sweatband. Just to mention it, the lining appears to be a light brown color. However, this is just the effects of the bright lights and camera flash as the lining is a bit darker brown than seen in the photos. Also, (and again due to the bright lights and camera flash) the sweatband looks dark brown but it is actually black.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: This cap is not as tall as other pattern forage caps. It is cut very low (like a chasseur kepi) thus giving it a rakish look. So with that this cap ride high up on the head. To keep it in place while active in the field you'll most likely need to use the chinstrap.

U.S FORAGE CAP. #BC3215. Originally purchased off sutler’s row and entirely machine sewn. Size 7 (measures 22 1/2“ around the sweatband). Has an “L” written on the lining crown but in real time size this cap is a 7 (which is like a small to medium at best). This cap has been used but remains in nice condition. Has a small stain on the front of the lining but that's pretty much it. Dark blue medium weight wool body w/ a black leather visor and two-piece chin strap w/ buckle. Two small U.S. eagle side buttons. Lined in muslin and stamped on the liner crown in small black print “J.T. Phillips” (not sure if this is a previous owner, current maker, or ???).

C.S. ARTILLERY KEPI. #BC5542. Made by Don Smith this size 7 (measures 23” around the sweatband) C.S. artillery cap was used strictly as a display piece for a number of years and thus remains in excellent condition! There are two very light blemishes on the top of the crown but hard to see unless you look closely (see "blemish" photos). Other than that this cap is in excellent condition as indicated.

This cap features a scarlet red wool broadcloth rise and crown w/ a cadet gray wool sideband. Additional features are a bound edge black enameled reinforced cotton visor, a black enameled two-piece chin strap w/ two flat style plain brass side buttons plus a plain brown cotton lining w/ a black & white print of a mounted P.G.T. Beauregard glued to the lining crown. Rounding out the inside is a hand sewn black painted tight weave cotton or linen (can’t tell for sure which fabric) sweatband.

PHOTO NOTE: The red portion of this cap is coming out looking fuzzy in these photos. It is not; it's a smooth finish fine weave broadcloth. Also, this cap was stuffed with paper for the photos just to show height. There is no wire or boning reinforcement along the back rise (made that way by design).

U.S. McDOWELL PATTERN CAP. #BC7718. Made by Jason Willis this McDowell pattern cap is brand new never used and is a size 7 to 7 1/8. Measures 23 1/8” around the sweatband which should equate to around a size 7 3/8. However, I wear a 7 3/8 cap but this McDowell is tight on me. One of the guys in the shop wears a 7 and he said the cap fits him pretty good. So this is why we are classifying it as a 7 to 7 1/8 (max) and will stand behind that sizing. This cap is made from a nice indigo dark blue wool broadcloth and features a crescent cut black enameled single thickness visor, a two-piece flat black chin strap without a buckle, two U.S. general service eagle side buttons and a black leather sweatband installed w/ a mix of hand and machine (vintage treadle machine) sewing. Rounding out this cap is a plain brown cotton lining. No label.

C.S. CADET GRAY KERSEY C.S. KEPI. SOLD!  #LB9838. Brand new never used cadet gray kersey C.S. kepi in size 7 5/8 (measures 24” around the sweatband). This cap features a tarred bound edge visor, tarred single piece chin strap w/ stamped brass C.S. block “I” side buttons. Inside we have an osnaburg lining and a tarred cotton hand sewn sweatband. Because this hat is brand new and never worn the sweatband is very stiff and would need some breaking in. Maker unknown at this time.

TWO CAPS: BLUE & GRAY. #SH6165. Being sold individually.Both from two sutler row. One is a U.S. forage cap and the second is a C.S. kepi. These have been worn but remain in very good condition; pretty clean too. The U.S. cap is a size 7 1/4 (measures 22 3/4“ around the sweatband) and the C.S. cap is a size 6 7/8 to 7 (measures 22 1/8“ around the sweatband). Both have the usual muslin linings - a couple tiny stains or marks on each lining but not a big thing - and both have machine sewn sweatbands. The U.S. FORAGE CAP comes with an infantry horn attached and the front and back of this cap has been tacked down near the crown with a couple stitches (very easily removed). This was probably done to keep the height down a little. Chin strap w/ buckle plus U.S. eagle side buttons are in place. The C.S. KEPI has a gray body w/ a dark blue sideband. This cap has no brass attached. The plain chin strap plus “CSA” side buttons are in place. Order by color (blue or gray).

DOMET FLANNEL SHIRT. SOLD!  #CR4320.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

DOMET FLANNEL U.S. ISSUE SHIRT. Sale Pending   #MS7824. This cream color domet flannel shirt has been worn but just a couple times. It does have some very light stains (but it could be light discoloration just from age). We tried to get some photos of this but they are so light they would not come out in the photos. That gives you an idea how light these are. Now in terms of physical condition this shirt rates excellent++ (no rips, tears, repairs, etc., etc). Fits up to a 44” chest (max). Machine sewn main seams but extensive hand sewn details (all seams rolled & hand felled, hand sewn button holes plus entirely hand top stitched). One small paperbacked tin button at the collar and one each on the cuffs. This shirt does NOT have any makers stamp. Therefore it would work well for a pre-war or very early war issue shirt. For war service years we can stamp this shirt (in black) “A.S. SARONI, New York” and “JAMES WILLIAMS, U.S. INSPECTOR, NY”on the rear shirt tail. No charge for the stamps. Just to mention it, given that we’d be stamping on a napped (fuzzy) fabric these stamps will not be super crisp and clear. Please keep that in mind. Last but not least, we’re not sure who made this shirt but it is high end work straight across the board.

Here are some additional measurements. Please check these against your own respective sizes to insure this shirt will fit you satisfactorily on all points.

COLLAR: 19” (so will fit a 18” neck comfortably)
SLEEVE LENGTH: 35” (as measured from the center of the back of the neck, over the shoulder and down to the cuff edge)
FRONT LENGTH:30 1/2"
BACK LENGTH: 32”
ARMPIT-TO-ARMPIT: 27" (not an actual sizing point in the tailoring world but a lot of gents ask for it).

SCARLET RED WOOL FLANNEL C.S. BATTLE SHIRT. #BC8722. Made by the Engineer’s Sutler this scarlet red wool flannel shirt fits up to a 44" chest. It was worn one time for a 1st Manassas event then laundered and stored. It does have some light marks on the body (at the waistline probably from accoutrements) and around the cuffs. Some of these marks were too light to come out in the photos but two we were able to get pictures of (see photos). However, these marks should dry clean out if you’re so inclined. Nonetheless, this shirt remains in GREAT condition all round and as mentioned it was laundered before being stored. Featured is a falling collar, 3-button front plaquet, 1-button collar, two front buttoning patch style pockets (6” wide x 6.5” tall), underarm gussets, side seam splits w/ small reinforcement patches, 1-button gathered cuffs plus bone buttons throughout. This shirt is entirely machine sewn including button holes.

Here are some additional measurements. Please check these against your own respective sizes to insure this shirt will fit you satisfactorily.

COLLAR: 19” (19” on the shirt so will fit an 18” neck comfortably)
SLEEVE: 35” (center of the back of the neck, over the shoulder and down to the bottom of the cuff)
FRONT LENGTH: 30“ (base of collar to front bottom hem)
BACK LENGTH: 31.5” (base of collar in the back to rear bottom hem)

DRAWERS

 

CANTON FLANNEL DRAWERS. Sale Pending   #AM3712. From sutler row. Used but in solid condition (no rips, tears, repairs, etc). Freshly laundered but some light stains remain on the knees and seat. The seller assured me this is not a ”bio-hazard”. LOL! Actually it looks like stains from red Georgia clay to me ( given that’s the neighborhood where these drawers saw service). Measures in with a 37 1/2" waist (39 1/2" w/ the rear tie let out) x 27 1/2" length . These are the style of drawers that end above the ankle by design. Cuffs are split and may?? have had draw string cords at one time … maybe. There is one paperback tin button on the waistband and one 7/8” Mother Of Pearl button in the fly. The fly originally opened from the waistband all the way down to the crotch seam. However, the owner closed half of this up with some hand felling and added a machine sewn button hole and the MoP button. This is not a repair but more of an adjustment to close up some of the original (and exceptionally long) open front fly length.

Shield shaped design (measures approx. 2" tall x 2 1/4" wide) w/ block letters "H R" on the front. Three prong heavy brass wire hooks in the back.

TWO C.S. PLATES. #SH9803. These plates have seen extensive service and have their share of light dings and/or scrapes plus a couple with deep heavy patinas (these have been in storage for quite a while). However, these should clean up a little with some polish & elbow grease. I very much doubt they’ll clean up to “like new” condition but should clean up enough to put in at least a serviceable appearance in the end. The "H.R." plate is stamped brass front w/ lead filled back. Order by letter.

A:   Georgia Frame Buckle. Good shape. … $8.00

B:   “H.R.” (Hempfield Rifles (Arkansas) Waist Belt Plate. Shield shape. 3 heavy brass wire prongs for mounting. As I have been told by the seller the “H.R.” stands for the HEMPFIELD RIFLES, an outfit out of Arkansas. $10.00

Price does not include shipping. Please E-MAIL ME with your buckle selection plus your zip code and I can get back to you with an order total (buckle + shipping).

U.S. WAIST BELT PLATE #BC9033 This lead filled arrow back U.S.waist plate had been used but remains in very solid serviceable condition. Ready to go back into service. The arrow back tangs have been bent up probably to help dismount the waist belt that was originally on it. A word to the wise: when you install your belt on this plate, bend these tangs back down SLOWLY so they don’t snap off. How many of you guys have had that happen to you? Yeah, count me in on that more than once. :-/
