    The buttons are saying US Navy to me, but I don't know precisely what era - possibly 60's or 70's.
    Green coloured top is odd........Is it removable ?

    Are there any tags inside under the sweatband ?
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Nothing is removeable on the hat and I can find no tags or markings at all on it either.

    The style is similar to a Greek fisherman's cap in some ways.

    Perhaps it was a private purchase item?

    I don't think it is any type of military or police, they would have a place for hat brass. If I had to take a wild guess I would say a doorman's uniform hat. John

    I agree. Maybe a drivers or doormans hat. Strange to see those buttons though.

    I guess a doorman, chauffer, milkman type person would have worn this.
    There is no provision for a badge and that probably means it is
    not military, but made by a firm that made military caps.....
