Lot 72051 Details

Description
Civil War North Carolina Confederate Officer's Slouch Hat Originally the Property of the North Carolina State Museum, Deaccessioned in 1963, Retaining the Original Ink Museum Inventory Number on the Leather Sweat Band. Buckskin colored wool felt of a form favored by General Robert E. Lee and many other Confederate officers. The 4" rolled brim is edged with a 9/16" ribbed silk binding. The crown stands 3 1/8" high with a 1" silk band around the base. The hat retains 90% of the original 1 7/8" brown leather sweatband. Absolutely original and unquestionably period. Also retains the original gold bullion officer's hat cord with acorn tassels which is stitched in place. The adjusting loop and acorns are covered with bullion netting, again a detail noted on other known Confederate officers hat cords. The sweat band shows some darkening from honest, tight and sound. There is a small hole on the left side of the brim, just behind the hat band bow and two small holes at the left rear of the crown, otherwise excellent and completely untouched. A classic Confederate officer's slouch hat with a similar example picture on page 166 of Time-Life's Echoes of Glory- Arms and Equipment of the Confederacy.

Important notice: Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 100-110 lots per hour. On some occasions eBay Live bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject an eBay Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the eBay live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via eBay Live, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since eBay bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the eBay bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie eBay live bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through eBay Live carry a 22.50% Buyer's Premium with a $9 minimum Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned in conjunction with a live floor auction by Heritage Auctions. All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary. Lot:72051
