I’m not sure about the exact time of manufacture of this kepi. I believe the maker is Baker & McKenney. Any info would be great. Thanks.
Your kepi is a Baker & McKinney and they were at the Grand address (NY) in 1864 and made private purchase caps. Most B&Ms are post war, your interior pictures are indicative of late to post war. Pictures of the side band and crown will confirm late or post. Looks like a very nice acquisition.
