1875 Cavalry Campaign Hat
The M1875 Regulation campaign hat was issued to Officers and Enlisted men. This smaller brimmed hat with an arched crown succeeded the M1872 which was often worn like a cockade hat because of its large brim and was eventually replaced due to it in durability.
The new style 1875 hat remained in service until 1885 for Enlisted Men but Officers continued to wear the hat until the turn of the 20 century with a slight modification of ventilation holes punched into the sides of the crown, cords for Officers remained the same black and gold with acorn ends.
