The style looks correct for Civil War, but I've only seen these in hats (think Hardee). I suppose they might show up in a forage cap or kepi (and the photo looks like one of those), but I've never seen one. Without seeing the rest of the piece here, hard to say what that means.

 

These labels are being reproduced also, so they're readily available. There's been a LOT of very suspicious looking Civil War headgear sold on eBay lately, so as always be mindful of where it comes from.

A photo of the hat itself would be helpful.

Do you know what the back marks are on the buttons and/or what they look like?

 

It does have some characteristics of a seemingly enormous collection being sold right now of mostly high end items, including a lot of headgear. Two seller IDs supply most. Many exhibit similar patterns of their apparent age, damage, and wear. For me, the eye opener was seeing both front and back of a button on one piece, yet it still went for over $800.
