Our illustrations will likely speak best for this attractive pattern of 1872 forage cap. Some minor mothing in the form of a few very small holes will not be objectionable in light of the desirable Indian Wars pattern and over all condition. Nice infantry I buttons and the correct (smaller than Civil War) infantry device set this classic off nicely. It should be noted that the infantry device attachment wires are under the lining rather than passing through the lining as they would on later embellishment. (Always a concern!) A nice brown cotton lining is set off by a J. A. Joel & Co. 88 Nassau St. N.Y. MILITARY SUPPLIES label. As an aside, Joseph A. Joel was an Ohio resident prior to the Civil War. He enlisted at the age of nineteen as a Private in Co. F 23rd Ohio. Wounded at South Mountain, MD, was discharged for disability before the wars end. He shows up in New York as early as 1867 where he is listed as a clerk. By 1891 Joel had formed a military supply business which he ran until 1911 when his sister is listed as chief operator. Tough to find in any condition with far fewer examples manufactured than the earlier Civil War pattern, this scarce 1872 pattern remains in pleasing condition and will lay in nicely with any period grouping. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
