Corresponding rows of braid can be added horizontally at the top of the band (add $5.00 per row). Also, a leather binding can be added to the edge of the brim (add $5.00). US caps have a leather brim, sweatband and adjustable chin strap with brass slide.

Regulations call for a Gold and Black hat cord for all officer's except Generals who wear all gold, with the gold being gold bullion. It was used for both the American Civil War & Indian Wars. There is also a Non-Regulation Hat Cord of Gold Bullion and Branch Colors available for Officer's of the Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry.

Staff and Field Officers, Regulation: Black Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord. On some of these the acorn is reversed with a gold bullion tip and black netting. This hat cord is available either in machine braided or hand twisted. The hand twisted is thicker cording.

General Officers, Regulation: Gold Bullion hat cord for all Generals.

Artillery, NON-Regulation:  Red Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord.

Cavalry, NON-Regulation:  Yellow Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord. This one looks very much like the Generals and you have to look close to see that there is yellow silk and it is not all gold bullion.
