CONFEDERATE OFFICER’S KEPI WITH VIRGINIA SIDE BUTTON

$6,500.00

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 14-1831

The body of this kepi is made of dark blue, almost black wool and is in very nice condition overall despite scattered moth damage on the body. The biggest of the moth holes is on the right front as you look at the cap with the visor facing you. This hole is approx. 1 x ½ an inch. There are four more areas of moth action around the body of the cap but none of the holes are more than an 1/8th of an inch in size. There is also signs of moth action on the underside of the base.

Approx. ¾ of an inch up from the base there are three parallel bands of horizontal gold braid surrounding the kepi. This braid shows some light discoloration but it is complete all the way around. There are two parallel vertical lines of gold braid on the front, back and both sides. The disc is also outlined in gold braid and the center has a quatrefoil made of a double strand of the same. The side buttons on the kepi are a three-piece Virginia button on one side and a brass civilian button with a sunburst at center on the other. The chinstrap is a thin band of gold braid stretching between the side buttons just above the visor. The visor is firmly attached and has a bound edge. The surface has some crazing as usual but is otherwise in very nice condition.

On the inside of the kepi the sweatband is completely intact. It meas. approx. 1 inch in width and is made of green leather. The same green leather lines the underside of the visor and the disc in the crown. The lining is made of black polished cotton with a drawstring at top. The lining does have a number of small moth holes scattered throughout but nothing serious. Most are small or “pin prick” sized except for one or two that are slightly larger. The drawstring is still present in the crown. [ad]
