The examples shown are largely wartime identified  and are shown on pages 100-101 of "US Army Headgear 1812-1872" by John Langellier and C. Paul Loane. These caps were also worn in the post War period untill 1871. $1895

This was worn on a belt around the waist, also called a "belly box". There would have been a leather knot which would have been used as a button. One of the nicest boxes from this period that I have seen. $895  $SOLD$

After shakedown off the Atlantic Coast, Iowa was assigned to the Atlantic Fleet and was ordered to blockade duty, 28 May 1898, off Santiago de Cuba. On 3 July 1898, she was the first to sight the Spanish ships approaching and fired the first shot in the Battle of Santiago de Cuba. In a 20-minute battle with Spanish cruisers Maria Teresa (flagship) and Oquendo, her effective fire set both ships aflame and drove them on the beach. Iowa, continuing the battle in company with converted yacht Gloucester sank the Spanish destroyer Pluton and so damaged destroyer Furor that she ran upon the rocks. Iowa then turned her attention to the Spanish cruiser Viscaya which she pursued until Viscaya ran aground. Upon the conclusion of the battle, Iowa received on board Spanish Admiral Cervera and the officers and crews of the Viscaya, Furor and Pluton.
