Officer's Civil War & Indian Wars Hat Cords

Item Last Updated: Thursday, 17-Aug-2017 19:36:08 EDT

Civil War and Indian Wars Staff and Filed Officers Hat Cord
Hand Twisted
    This is the Officer's Hat cord for the Hardee hat and Slouch Hats. Regulations call for a Gold and Black hat cord for all officer's except Generals who wear all gold, with the gold being gold bullion. It was used for both the American Civil War & Indian Wars. There is also a Non-Regulation Hat Cord of Gold Bullion and Branch Colors available for Officer's of the Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry.

Staff and Field Officers, Regulation: Black Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord. On some of these the acorn is reversed with a gold bullion tip and black netting. This hat cord is available either in machine braided or hand twisted. The hand twisted is thicker cording.

General Officers, Regulation: Gold Bullion hat cord for all Generals.

Artillery, NON-Regulation:  Red Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord.

Cavalry, NON-Regulation:  Yellow Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord. This one looks very much like the Generals and you have to look close to see that there is yellow silk and it is not all gold bullion.

Infantry, NON-Regulation:  Light Blue Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord.

    Indian Wars troops wore insignia on their hats and caps to designate their Branch, Regiment and Company. They were more prevalent at the beginning of the Indian Wars and became less popular as the time went on. There were made of stamped brass. Our Branch Insignia are reproductions are duplicates of the originals.

    The 1872 Cavalry Insignia with Regimental Number and Company Letter (1A, 1E, 7A, 7C & 7E) attached are temporarily unavailable. My supplier has quit making them and I am now having to make these myself and am way behind. As soon as I get all the back-ordered ones done and some for inventory (or if the supplier offers them again) I will offer them again.
