Manufacturer: American antique

This original Civil War wool worsted hat cord retains that rarely seen and desirable light grey-tan color that knowledgeable collectors associate with the earlier Civil War Invalid Corps, re- designated as the Veteran Reserve Corps in 1863. Once fairly common as period surplus (mostly in artillery red) the scarcity of originals, even in the originally more common colors, has fostered manufacture of reproductions for the re-enactor market. We recently acquired a small collection of originals from an old collector friend and are offering them individually to the collector who would like a specific example. As one would expect the vast majority are artillery red with only single examples of the now extremely scarce variations. (use hat cord in our search feature to see other available variations ) This scarce Veteran Reserve Corps cord is fashioned from coarse wool worsted with a distinctive splice in one cord which is indicative of the Bannerman examples. With a considerable amount of War Surplus left in military stores after the Civil War, government agents busied themselves with clearing out surplus stockpiles. If no bulk buyers could be found for a particular item those items would be rendered useless for their intended purpose and sold at a reduced price as scrap or salvage. Closure straps would be cut off cartridge boxes, straps removed from knapsacks, roller buckles cut from leather straps &c. In the case of these wool hat cords, the cord was cut thus allowing use of the cord but taking away the intended use as a hat cord. Many large lots were purchased by Bannerman who promptly spliced the severed cords together with red thread and sold them as hat cords. ) Not to be confused with an infantry cord faded to blue-gray, this original grey-tan Invalid Corps / Veteran Reserve cord is fashioned from that distinctive period worsted wool and remains in excellent as issued condition with the exception of the post Civil War Bannerman splice.
