    Cap is definately pre-war. I would say circa 1936-37. It lacks a full sattelform, and has the earlier frosted eagle:

    The yellow piping is so bright, you almost gotta wear shades:

    Hat is made by a mom 'n pop maker--no logo whatsoever. Only hint of age is the yellowing to the sweatdiamond (which is starting to pull from the liner). Sweatband is as supple as the day it was made:

    So, in summary, these "no-name" visors can be just as nice (if not nicer) than those produced by the "big boys"--mom n' pop put a lot more time, effort and care into making their caps!
