After careful sourcing and pattern development, I am proud to offer this high quality reproduction. This cap features many items exclusive to the private purchased caps of the period, including a folded and stitched sweatband, carefully set by hand. Also, accurately duplicated is the beaded and tooled visor, which, as noted above, simulates a bound edge. One of the major features is the custom made cap, is the jewelry grade adjustment buckle pictured at left. The Lincoln cap bore an identical buckle, which apparently was hand made. It bore the same mitred corners as shown. This is the first offering of a reproduction of this piece of hardware, and is sure to stand out as a unique piece of headgear. Both the sweatband and crown are embossed with a custom, hand engraved die, of a high quality detail level, known as "treasury grade". This only completes the accuracy of this superb reproduction
