HARDEE HAT. #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. Does not have a hat cord and except for the attached brass side eagle, there is no regimental, company or branch of service brass attached - nor has there even been so there are no holes in the hat. There is a double row of stitching around the brim edge. Inside we have a hand sewn black leather sweatband and on the inside top of the crown is a U.S. Army “Extra” Manufacture label and number “8” indicating the hat size. This hat will ship via U.S. Postal Service Retail Ground to keep the shipping rate as low as possible.

U.S. FORAGE CAP. #BC7707 Dirty Billy made L.J & I. Phillips Type I Federal forage in a size 7 (measures 22 3/4“ around the sweatband). Worn just a couple times and remains in very nice condition. Dark blue wool broadcloth body with a gloss black visor & two-piece chin strap w/ brass buckle. Two small U.S. eagle side buttons. Lined in a light brown cotton and has a dark brown hand sewn sweatband. There is an L.J. & I Phillips makers label on the inside crown.

C.S. ENGINEER LIEUTENANT’S KEPI. #DSC9263. Made by Quartermaster Shop. Size 7 3/8 (measures 23” around the sweatband). This cap has seen a fair amount of service. The dark blue wool body, gold bullion work (crown, trefoil & quartering) as well as the black visor, chin strap & black cotton lining are all in very good condition. However, the black leather sweatband has a major break in it and a fair size piece is broken off (see photos). We have that broken piece. The sweatband needs to be removed and if possible a new sweatband installed (just a suggestion but given that the rest of the cap is in overall nice shape it would be worth the effort). Has a bullion Old English "E" sewn to the front (shows a little wear) plus has small CS staff buttons on the side. Just to mention it, this cap is coming out looking purple in some of the photos. This is just the effect of the bright light and camera flash as the cap is dark blue.

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. Sale Pending   #BC8376. Early war pattern L.J. & I Phillips Type I made by Jason Wickersty. Cap is a size 7 5/8 (measures 24“ around the sweatband). This cap has been used but remains in excellent condition inside and out. Does not have any cap brass or insignia and none were ever attached. Hence no holes punched into the pasteboard top. High gloss black enameled visor w/ enameled two-piece functioning chinstrap & brass buckle. Two 1/2” U.S. eagle side buttons. Lined in a in a dark brown cotton with a knurled hand sewn black leather sweatband. On the crown lining is a small paper label - “Size No. 8, 7 5/8, U.S. Army, L.J.& I. P”.

PHOTO NOTES: In the majority of the photos this cap was stuffed with paper to show its height. Also, the cap looks purple in the photos. However, this is just the effect due to the bright lights and cameras flash as the cap is in fact dark blue.

Just to mention it, in the two photos showing the body lining, the dark color area in the center of the crown lining is coming out a lot darker than it actually is in person. We tried shooting this in different light but it still came out looking darker than it actually is. Just wanted to pass that on.

C.S. JEAN WOOL KEPI. #TE7340. Maker unknown on this high end pale brown (or like a darker khaki color) C.S. Jean Wool Kepi. Size 7 5/8 (measures 23 1/4“ around the sweatband).

The cap is lined w/ a maroon cotton shirting that has printed multi-colored floral designs. There is a repro "DOUGLASS" (maker) paper label on the lining crown. This label has some smudges from wear so not all print is legible. Rounding out this cap is a brown leather hand sewn sweatband.

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. Sale Pending  #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. Here are two sutler row caps, one is a U.S. forage cap and the second is a C.S. kepi. These have been worn but remain in overall very good condition. 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 U.S. ISSUE SHIRT. #MS7824. This cream color domet flannel shirt has been worn but just a couple time. 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”

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.

New Listing  CANTON FLANNEL DRAWERS. #EC3627. Privately made and entirely machine sewn including button holes. All seams are raw / unfelled. Worn but remain in very good+ condition. One of the front waistband buttons has been repaired (good repair - works fine). Freshly laundered. No stains, no marks, etc. Nice and clean. Measures in with a 36" waist (w/ about 2" extra if you let out the rear tie) x 27" length. When it comes to drawers some lengths by design did not go all the way down to the ankle. Not sure if this was one of those or the length of the wearer was in fact 27”. Just something to consider. Split rear waistband w/ 1/4” wide white cotton herringbone twill tie-back lace. Two 7/8" (could be Mother-of-Pearl) buttons on the front waistband, four of the same in the full front length (waistband to crotch) fly and one of the same on each buttoning cuff. There are two button holes on the bottom of each cuff for a small range of adjustment. Rounding out these drawers are reinforcing gussets sewn into the rear seams. No stamps.

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. :-/
