Original Civil War Kepi with Infantry Insignia, maker-marked (SOLD)

Out of Stock

$475.00

Product Description

Being offered is an original Civil War Union kepi. It has what appears to be its original Infantry Horn brass insignia. Although faint, the makers label is still on the underside of the crown of the hat. It is “Baker & McKenney / Military Goods / 141 / Grand St. New York”.

Baker & McKenney of New York City was a major maker of accoutrements and hats during the Civil War. In 1864 they had a government contract to supply 10,000 sets of infantry accoutrements.

As seen in the pictures, the hat is in poor/relic condition. However, being in the glass top display case, it still displays well. It is part of the federal uniform that was worn daily by a Civil War soldier, so there is a lot of significances to this piece. Civil War headgear is very pricey – a similar example in good condition runs around $2000.00. The friendly layaway option is available for this product.
