Labeled a civil war era bicorn hat. These are,often so hard to I.D because they changed so little. I'm hoping someone can tell me a little something about how old this one is.

Well, given that one of the dates on the label is 1867, it misses the CW by a couple years.

That said...it could date anywhere from the 1890s through the 1930s. Tough to pin it down more than that, but from the wear and overall age, I'd make a wager and say it's a WW1 vintage example.
