CIVIL WAR ENLISTED RIFLEMAN’S HAT INSIGNIA

$225.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 490-2898

Here we have a large rifleman’s cap insignia for use by enlisted men on the 1858 Army hat. This die-stamped brass insignia measures approximately 3 ½ inches in height by 1 ½ inches in width. This insignia features two loops of reverse tubing an no tassels along the horn. You’ll notice that the horn is ornamented as well, making this insignia stand-out from the others of the same pattern. These free-wheeling details are credited to William Horstmann.

This insignia is bright and clean with no tarnish to the metal. No pushes or breaks are present. Two strong loops are present to affix the insignia to the cap. There are three spots along the insignia which have been reinforced by solder to strengthen them, which was a standard practice in production of these insignia.

This is a fine example of a Civil War insignia which is seldom seen. [cls] [ph:L]
