FS: USMC Civil War Shako


Recommended Posts

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.
