    Default Cap That looks Like its Been There and Done That

    Hello everyone,

    I recently picked this up this USN officer's visor at an estate sale. Although not in the best shape, its still intact. the seller didn't know the story behind it. I could not find a name or a service number, which is too bad because it looks like it has had an interesting history. I'm still researching it but it looks like it may be early war or pre-war manufacture based on the strap buttons. Probably like most collectors, I'm acquiring too much stuff. Nonetheless, it was a bargain.....and I couldn't resist the salty look. Thanks for looking.

    Hey there, hftiii....

    I agree, this cap does in-fact seem as if it has a story to tell. I think it looks great. Congratulations on the find.

    .. If you learn more details, do post them. I for one would be interested in learning about anything you find out.


    Thanks' for posting the photos.

    A ripper, certainly a in-between the wars example, I have to find myself a similar one one of these days!
    Cheers for showing

    Thanks Rene. I was hoping to find a name behind the sweat band but no such luck. I image that the cap had a sweat shield but no evidence that I can see. It is neat that it is early and well-used. I'm going to try to clean the leather a little to help preserve it but otherwise leave the hat as is.

    Tom,

    This is a wonderful looking hat.. I can't comment on the era or make but it is a nice worn piece and I can imagine it being worn on a bridge of a ship with the salt sea mist lightly spraying the owner and his hat..

    Very nice indeed

    Nice hat I'd expect this one to pre date ww2, most likely 30s period.

    This is a fantastic looking cap. Beats a pristine example any day
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
