Terms and Policies

NOTICE: DUE TO INCREASED USPS SHIPPING RATES, WE HAVE TRANSITIONED TO PRICES WITHOUT SHIPPING - AND SHIPPING WILL BE CALCULATED SEPARATELY FOR EACH ORDER. PLEASE CONTACT US WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

SHIPPING: Prices now exclude shipping except where otherwise noted. Standard shipping applies only to Continental USA. Additional shipping is required outside Continental USA. We do ship internationally - request a quote. Contact us with any questions. Thank you. Expedited shipping is extra.


We accept payment in full up front to "George Franks" through secure PayPal (using credit card). We can also accept mailed checks or money orders made out to "George Franks" in U.S. dollars. Contact us for the mailing address.

Please provide a full and detailed description of which hat style you desire including order number, wool or fur felt, binding or no binding, color of binding, type and color of cockade, type of button (pewter or brass) and any other details specific to the regiment, unit or impression.  Note: Machine sewn hats all have leather liners (sweatbands).

Please include head measurement in INCHES just above the ears and over hair and/or whig.  Do not hold it too tight. We will convert to the appropriate hat size. If you can provide your hat size along with head measurement that is helpful to guarantee a good fit.


Prices may change at any time without notice.

PLEASE NOTE: ROUND BLOCKED, HAND SEWN HATS TAKE APPROXIMATELY 60 - 90 DAYS FROM ORDER TO SHIP. OVAL BLOCKED/MACHINE SEWN HATS TYPICALLY TAKE A MINIMUM OF 45 DAYS FROM ORDER TO SHIP (customized and orders requiring hand sewn trim on machine sewn hat orders may take longer). Expedited fees are applicable for orders requested in less than the stated interval. If you need a hat by a specific date, please inform us up front. Thank you!

NOTE: Each hat is custom crafted to each customer's specifications.  Hats are NOT RETURNABLE.  Please be specific regarding style, trim, specification including head size.  If you have any questions, contact us.  We make every effort to reply within one business day.


While we have researched our hats extensively, there are unit variations that we may not have within our documentation. As noted above: customers must provide the specifications for other than our "standard" hat offerings (dimensions, color of loopings, binding color and type, cockade color and type, button material and type, etc.). 

RESEARCH: We do not provide free research services.  CockedHats.com can be engaged to provide research.  If you desire research regarding a hat, uniform, unit, etc., we would be happy to provide a quote for our research services.  We have worked with museums, historical societies, living history units, parks, battlefields and other organizations in the areas of military uniforms, material culture, history and traditions.
