Make sure you use real scalp locks sewn on for fringes.

Boco... I traded for a Fisher skin hat back in 1982 at a Rendezvous in Tennessee...there were blond and brown real hair locks off each side. Wrapped with red felt and sinus. The Trader told me he cut his Daughters long hair to make those!!!

True story!

The real war shirts in the museums have actual scalp locks(tanned scalp) not just the hair.They are small 1 inch circles of tanned scalp sewn all along the arms and shoulder area of the warshirt-they look really neat.
The copies have horsehair and dont look anything like real human scalp locks.

I heard the last guy supplying them went out of buisness quite a few years ago-guy name of Gein out of Wisconsin.
