This is an all Original Confederate Staff officers Kepi, has Virginia State Seal Visor Buttons. The kepi is constructed from grey wool broadcloth with a tabby weave and black wool band and crown. The kepi is accented by a 3/32" wide flat double gold braid up the back seam, front and at an angle to the top with a triple-strand quatrefoil on top. The visor is of single thickness, black patent leather and is very good condition. This wonderful example of a Confederate Staff Officers Kepi shows the classic proportions for the Civil War period. Extremely well made and well tailored, the silk dress lining is a unique indication of Confederate manufacture. A very rare Confederate Kepi and identical to what Confederate General Walter H.
