Circa 1890 - 1910. The Cadet gray material has great color and shows minimal moth damage, about three spots. This is a large size kepi made in the traditional Civil War design. The stitching is very strong throughout this hat. The enameled black visor is in sound condition showing some light crazing and is securely attached to the body of the cap. The leather chin strap is retained by star buttons. The inside of the kepi is immaculate, with the 1 1/2" leather sweatband being in great condition. The paste board in the crown of the cap is securely attached and shows honest wear but no damage. In gold lettering is the maker: “Confederate Caps / Chapel Hill / NC” in old English script. This beautiful old veteran’s hat would great in a Confederate Veterans display.
