This nice looking early Civil War import leather shako, (see: RALLY ROUND THE FLAG / Uniforms of the Union Volunteers of 1861 by Ron Field) unlike so many found today, retains its shape and is complete with original die struck brass American eagle over infantry horn plate as illustrated in Stanley Philip’s, Excavated Artifacts from Battlefields & Campsites of the Civil War. All original and complete, this example even retains the chin strap with original strap retainer in the crown. Both original features are generally long since gone. Known to have been imported early in the Civil War, the use of this handsome shako has been well established by virtue of camp site and battle field excavations with records of use by Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and New York regiments. A showy example of Civil War era headgear, this as found all original leather shako offers good evidence of age and originality yet remains in pleasing condition with nice original finish and solid construction even to its original 2 ¾ inch wide sweat band. An attractive piece of Civil War head gear at a reasonable price! 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 !
