1872 Forage Cap

'72 Forage Cap with optional Deluxe Bound Brim, and optional insignia.


US Forage Cap M-1872

Our reproduction model 1872 US Forage Cap is a beauty! Top quality wool, polished cotton lining with draw string just like originals. With leather brim and sweatband with correct size leather chin strap (1/2" for 1872 and later caps) with brass slide buckle.

The M-1872 cap is shorter in height than the Civil War era Kepi caps. Because of this, the cap tends to ride quite high on the head - giving one the sensation it will slide off. The 9 ounce leather brim is available without edge binding or with edge binding added.

Made in the USA!

Brass Insignia shown on the caps at left and below are correct pattern for 1872 and later Officers and ENlisted and may be ordered in the insignia section below. Or you may order our Civil War era US Officer's embroidered badges. Staff uses the embroidered badges. Either will have to be installed by yourself.
