Model 1872 Officer's Kepi with 7th Cavalry Insignia
Item #: WR29
This is a Model 1872 officer's kepi from the Indian Wars period. The blue wool is in excellent condition with no mothing. The black leather 1 1/4" sweatband is completely intact. All stitching is strong throughout the kepi. The two general service buttons are two piece design and are back marked SCOVILL MF'G CO. WATERBURY. The black leather chin strap, black tarred visor and black leather sweatband are in remarkable condition. There is a shadow of a makers label in the top of the kepi. I can not make out the makers name, but it is very similar to the other 7th Cavalry kepi listed on the site. Oh yeah, I hadn't mentioned that yet. Pinned to the top of this incredible kepi is a jewelers made brass Cavalry insignia with the number 7 above the crossed sabers. The brass piece measures 1 1/2" wide and 7/8" high. This is a post Little Big Horn kepi, I believe it to be an 1880's piece. It is an excellent example of the head gear worn by the 'boys in dirty shirt blue". If you have an Indian Wars collection this kepi will complete it. No need to ever worry about and upgrade here!
