Original US Army M1874/81 pattern enlisted kepi





Offered is an original US Army M1874 pattern enlisted kepi, "modified" for the M1881 pattern by compressing/lowering the front of the kepi with a couple of stitches. A used piece, but solid with original unbound visor, full leather chinstrap held by federal staff side buttons. Wool has no holes or mothing; has a period stitch repair as shown. Interior shows cloth sweatband with remnants of leather, full cotton lining with maker stamp; all I can make out for certain is a spread-wing eagle and "Atlanta" in the stamp. Not a mint piece, but real, and displays well when form-stuffed into shape. See photos.
