This item belonged to my neighbor and was passed down by G. Mayers of Barbados / West Indies.
Mayers was an illegal immigrant that made it safely to the U. After at least one failed attempt.
Went on to become a Mason and commanding officer in Troy, Alabama. The leather headband on inside has slightly come loose on one side, but otherwise remains in good condition! I'm not sure of an exact date, but could date back as far as the Civil War! This is an original hat, not a reproduction!
