    Default WWII Royal Navy Senior Officer Visor cap

    I picked up this cap recently on Ebay, for what I believe to be a real bargain price. Only one moth bite on the upper right crown. Cap is made of the finest doeskin wool; very soft to the touch.
    Named on the sweatband to a Surgeon Captain, RN.
    Opinions welcome. Thanks.

    You did well, looks like a Gieves made cap. For whatever reason WW II RN just does not interest collectors and are typically low priced.

    Very nice cap Bob, and not one you see that often. I don't know much about Navy items, so can't comment on it too much with any authority, but it sure looks fine IMHO.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Yes RN items don't seem that valued by many. I wanted a senior officer cap, and saw a nice one at the last SOS in Louisville, but it was priced at $450 ! I paid a fraction of that, for a cap that is very close in quality & condition to that one.

    Hi BobS,

    Nice looking cap and everything is as it should be for such an example. I would also say Gieves from the smudged embossed logo on the crown. Does it have a label, as that will help date it better.

    Yes, under strong light, you can see the remains of the printing for a Gieves label. I have over 40 officer dress caps, both British & German, and the material on this one is the softest and smoothest to the touch.

    Some better photos of this cap, taken by a friend of mine, whose photography skills eclipse my mediocre efforts!
