I picked up this M1874 5 button sack coat today and it included the pants and a M1895 forage cap.

The interior pocket revealed what appears to be the name of the owner - Olaf Johnson

The pants are stamped with a 1899-90 date

The hat has no markings except the manufacturer which is B. Pasquale & Sons of San Francisco.


I was wondering if by chance anyone could help in finding some information on him?

I would love to put the correct Infantry insignia on the hat!
