Original U.S. Early 20th Century M1902 Army Cavalry Enlisted Visor Cap

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice regulation M1902 enlisted peaked cap, which replaced the earlier M1895 pattern. This was the U.S. Army's second example of a visor cap after leaving the traditional kepi design. Like the M1895, it is made of dark blue wool, and has an enameled leather visor bound with patent leather, lined on the underside with lacquered paper. It has two yellow bands going around the cap, and a patent leather shin strap retained by gilded brass federal regulation U.S. Army eagle buttons.

The interior of the cap does not have a sweatband, so we believe it probably deteriorated long ago, and was removed. The front of the cap has a "A" Company, “MTMA” Cavalry insignia, which is still in great shape. The cap shows evident mothing, except under the chin strap, where holes have been made in one of the blue bands. The color is much less faded under the chin strap, so this cap was on display for many years.

A very nice example, ready to display!
