What are the differences between a "Type I and Type II" issue cap?
Type I forage cap
Smaller disk (around 5 ¼”) with a curved “duckbill” visor. Considered by some as being an "early war" cap, it is in truth seen in pictures throughout the entire war. John P. Langellier's book Army Blue, lists this cap as the model 1858.
As an aside, these are the steps involved in stamping and forming our chinstrap buckles.Basically it is a 5 step process, which are, from left to right, blanking, punching first hole, then second, and finally forming.
