    Mint officer’s tropical visor by Brooks of Calif. U.S. embroidered (done in U.S.) eagle with interior double wall construction enclosing a lacquered cane interior band to permit air flow. Surprise was the price tag – this cost $7.95. Note the double grommet inside top - purple one was for the screw on metal eagle and the lower for the vent system. Leather visor lined underneath in gray/green leather.

    Sydney (Australia) made USAAF NCO cap. What is of note is that the interior construction identical to German-constructed visors of the era-- Ribbon through sweatband, pleated cloth interior, sewing detail, etc. Logo real interesting – man in hard hat being raised to a building standing on a beam marked “still rising”. Note the leather cavalry strap on rear – officer feature usually. Probably 1943/1944. Rare to see enlisted private purchase.

    Prewar (circa 1934) USAAF pilot's uniform--note that the insignia on the tunic is direct-embroidered bullion:
