Richmond Maker marked – 28th Va. / 5th Virginia Cavalry - SLOUCH HAT

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Another treasure offered here as we downsize our accumulation of nearly 60 years of aggressive collecting this wonderful old Confederate slouch hat was acquired with no particular history beyond its classic character bolstered by an impressive period Richmond, Virginia maker’s label. A true ‘sleeper’ fellow collectors will appreciate our delight when once on our desk for close examination, the illustrated period J. A. Persinger his hat / Papa’s Army Hat - Robt. Persinger notation was discovered under the band. Our research identified Robert Persinger as the son of John Abner Persinger born just after the War and lived into 1940. J. A. Persinger served in the Civil War as a Sergeant , Co I, 28th Virginia Infantry 5/13/1861 to 12/15/1864 when he transferred to the 5th Virginia Cavalry. During his Confederate service Sgt. Persinger was wounded at Gaines' Mill, wounded and taken prisoner at Gettysburg,(Pickett’s Charge), was hospitalized then paroled, then taken prisoner once again at Point Lookout before taking the Oath of Allegiance June 16 1865.
As to the hat itself our photo illustrations will do best to communicate its charm and eye appeal except to advise that with good age and untouched originality, it remains sound with no cracks or separations save the obviously period break at the top of the crown. (A small single hole on each side at the union of the crown and brim would indicate that the wearer used a thong under the chin.) A ’showstopper’ to the Civil War collector and of special interest to the Confederate Headgear enthusiast, is the period paper label proclaiming the piece as EXTRA QUALITY with the partially discernable RICHARD MOORE above MILITARY HATTER & CAP MAKER with a period wear obliterated street address but bold RICHMOND, VIRGINIA. (see: 1856 / 1860 Richmond business directories under hatters for Moore, Richard, Broad St 5th and 6th). An outstanding item, we are offering this one with some reluctance, but it would fit more appropriately in a strong Confederate collection than with our Maine things. (See a portion of our collection at www.MaineLegacy.com )
Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
