A fine conditioned cap with contract stamp and date, and Identified with soldier name and unit on sweatband
Made by Army contractors, and stamped inside the forward area of the sweatband, Gram & Clabb, and dated July 6, 1908. A quality cap made in wool, and worn with the service dress (field) uniform from 1902-1912 period.
Nearly void of any mothing, there are two small holes on the right side of the cap and to the rear and above the side button. One is about an 1/8 inch round, the other hardly noticeable. Interior is fine with some soiling to the sweatband, exhibiting some use, and still retaining the sizing label, “7.” The subdued insignia is in fine condition as well and has just slight wear to edges.
Identified in period ink on the sweatband, G.A. Yenser, Battery “F”, 4th F.A.” I have no information on him.
This regiment was reformed in 1907, in a two battalion strength.
A scarce cap.
