    Nice Toronto made rogatywka.
    Is it possible to see more pictures of the naval cap? Are there any markings on the lining?

    Hi Mariusz, one of the rare survivors. Congratulations once again on your acquisition. Yours has the Wm. Scully (Montreal) eagle badge. The sweatbands on these were made of a synthetic almost paperlike type leather that just did not stand the test of time. I can see evidence in the photos that yours is crumbling, as is the sweatband on mine. But otherwise the hat appears to be in super condition.

    Regards,
    Tony
