American Militia Dragoon Helmet. This helmet’s leather with brass visor and banding dates from the 1820’s. It has an 1833 Regulation Dragoon plate on the front and this was the last time it was upgraded to copy the Regs for the U.S. Army. Militia units often kept the old uniform pieces and updated them with the latest insignia. This is a fine example of the practice. The helmet has false chin scales (brass and large eagle disc side buttons. The long plume is white horse hair and was restored 20 or 30 years ago. All the brass was silver plated at one time and may have been polished off as part of an upgrade in the early 19th century. The sweatband is complete and 2 3/8” wide. It has a bag lining that is complete but is loose on one side. It appears that the leather was cracked in a couple of places and that has been cleverly restored, again 20 or 30 years ago. A very nice Militia Jockey helmet. 95.M29 (#10)
