    I would say 50s as the oldest as arts caps did not produce many caps during ww2 very few I believe they were creating after the war. I would say it is pre 60s because of the leather top as they did not usually wear this style of cover in Vietnam

    Officers summer cover. If there is rattan for the stiffener behind the sweat band it will be WWII / Korea period.

    Thanks guys. I was looking at stonemints sticky on KM caps and saw a similarity with he removable tops. Mine seems to have had a cover at one time, also there is room for the cover to slip under the eagle badge. Also, I looked under the sweat band and saw a name and some numbers. Forgive me if I am naive , I don't collect US items.

    Most of the cover on hats that are post ww2 come off, from the pictures of the inside I would date the hat to the late 50s not a bad hat overall clean condition
