MODEL 1872 ARTILLERY FORAGE CAP OR KEPI INSIGNIA – ORIGINAL:  An original Model 1875 Artillery Kepi or Forage Cap Insignia, which was introduced in 1872 to replace the larger insignia dating from before the Civil War.   

This insignia was affixed to the front of the crown of the Infantry Soldier’s hat and measures 2” long and 1 ¼” high.  This insignia is unissued, old original stock, in like new condition, however one of the four attaching loops on the reverse is missing – the other three are present. .

Less common than the infantry and cavalry Forage Cap insignias, this artillery insignia will be a nice addition to your Indian War uniform and equipment collection.  (0425) $55
