In a very cool looking trunk which happens to be a just about a perfect place. To save the kepi and it's deep blue color as the sun caused fading after a few seasons exposed to the inclement weather and battlefield conditions.
The trunk had Arsenal stencilled on the top but the rest of the letters were once again very faded or scrawled over almost as if intentional (my paranoia) perhaps a child using it as a toy chest or play thing. Just a guess based on the proximity to Sharpsburg. At one point thousands of troops from both sides in the area. This must have been a collectors dream about 150 yrs ago. We have had quite a few Antietam artifacts through the years and still have a few rifles and other artifacts hidden where the humidity will not get to them.An easy fix if you choose to restore. Popular styles included the slouch hat. With either a flat or round top which, like the contemporary Foreign Legion cap. Had a neck flap to protect the wearer from the sun. This is a wonderful still affordable artifact that will make for a fabulous display. NOTE: Hardware is unattached and used as a prop. Please carefully check photo's for condition and decide if this is for you.
