    It came up one eBay, so I picked it up and sent the seller a question asking him if he had a story about it. And it turns out he actually knew the guy because he was in the same nursing home as his mother

    A good pick up and with its known history a bonus.

    How do you date these USN caps, I have one and I have no idea when it would date to.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    They made these caps up onto the 60s I think. So it is difficult to put a date on them
