Museum quality M1902 Historic hat

Beautiful, starred M1902 issue Campaign hat purchased from Walter Budd by a fellow collector on 5/2/2011. Walter included extensive documentation that will be passed along to the buyer. The hat was the property of Colonel E. P. Easterbrook, Chief of Chaplains, US Army. He was a member of New York’s 202 regiment and eventually found himself in the 17th US Infantry. Along the way he served with many units including Philippine service. In 1903 his unit was fighting with Moros on Mindanao. Later Datto Djimbangan. He served in the occupation of Germany after World War one. His name is written on the hat band. Excellent quality hat, including hat band and superb black ribbon. Please don’t turn the band inside out, it is an issue hat. It isn’t torn but will be with those inquisitive hands. Nice dark black color. Included is Easterbrook’s silver chaplain’s cross. The top wire fastener has broken off, only bottom one remains, it holds very well. The M1898 Officer’s black and white bullion hat cord and is the original cord. No issues or problems with the hat. The documentation will be included and is very interesting. Perfect Spanish American War, Philippine Insurrection. Museum quality.

12th Minnesota 1898 Campaign Hat. For Sale

100% original and QMD issue campaign hat to a 12th Minnesota soldier. Super example of a Spanish American War hat. Personal art work around the hat, looks like someone later might have tried to enhance some of the lines. I am not seeing the soldier’s name but it might be Decker. It has the original hat ribbon as well. I have NOT looked under the hat band because it is fragile. It will probably tell the story. I am unable to accept returns of this hat if you damage the band and want to return it. It really speaks for itself and if you know campaign hats, you will know that this is the real deal.
