This is the low-crown chasseur style kepi popular during the Civil War with the more dashing officers and officially adopted as the pattern for the fatigue cap in 1872. This one dates to the Indian Wars and has nice color, just a little mothing to the upper left side, full chinstrap secured by Eagle-C buttons, and unbound visor securely attached. The exterior mounts an officer’s style rectangular blue wool patch with gold bullion embroidered crossed sabers showing appropriate muting of the gilt from age, but not oxidation to silver or gray. The sweatband is in place on the inside and complete, showing a little wear along the bottom edge and some sweat stains from actual wear. The interior is lined in black silk and the underside of the top is quilted in circular bands and embossed, “HORSTMANN BROS. & CO. / MILITARY GOODS & REGALIA / COR. FIFTH & CHERRY STS. / Philadelphia.” This address was the company showroom from 1860 to 1893.  [sr] [ph:M]
