Incredibly scarce Civil War era USMC Shako.  A guaranteed real one that was obviously never issued.  Tarred leather bill and top with correct vents and domed USMC chin strap buttons.  Bent & Bush (the only USMC supplier) label is clear and crisp as is the hand drawn size "7 & 1/2"..  Even the wax drawstring in the crown is mint with no staining... leather sweat shield is perfect and still supple.  

 

Yeah, you'll need to find a front piece but those are a lot easier to locate than the Shako.  This is the only one I've seen offered for sale on USMF.   

 

Price is $3500.00 / obo.  I will also happily entertain trades for WW1 USMC medal groups or pretty much ANYTHING related to the WW1 USMC Machine Gun units (6th, 8th, & 73rd)

 

Thanks

Last.  Thanks for viewing.

 

Pricing is subjective on these as the last one I found sold for over 5k but had the front piece.  Feel free to shoot me an offer and I'm open to trade/cash deals too.
