    Default WWI Cold Weather Hat?? Anyone Know??

    Found this at a thrift store today and while it has no markings of any kind it seems to be the same color and material that I have seen WWI uniforms made of. I only paid $5.00 for it so if it is just a junk hat I am not out much, but I it looked like it might be something so I just couldn't passit up. Funny I had to wait until a group of teenage girls got done trying it on before I could grab it. I know very little about WWI militaria so I was hoping someone could tell me if I found trash or treasure??

    Actually, this is an early WWII US winter hat. A guy in Minnesota online just sold an identical one on eBay for $85 bucks. (Item number 180351699935) A kind of tough to find cap. Not bad for 5 bucks! Lucky the girlies didn't make off with it for a funny hat! William
