Early quality with top made of nice quality smooth grey green doe skin type wool with golden yellow wool piping around top edge. Band is made of dark green wool and piped in golden yellow, the eagle is made of aluminum and the wreath is also made of aluminum and has the vented type cockade. Visor is standard type with black finish, chinstrap is silver aluminum cord. The inside is lined with the light gold silk rayon type material with plastic sweat diamond with “Erel” logo under diamond in silver print. The leather sweat band has light cream color and has “Erel” logo in silver print, hat looks to be about size 57. Overall hat has nice shape and colors are still bright, but has some moth tracks on top and some moth nips in other places, some are noticeable but not all that distracting. The inside has some damage to the light gold silk rayon lining, the leather sweat band shows some wear and age but still nice. Hat looks like it was very nice when it came home from the war, but was stored in the wrong place, would have been about $1200 to $1500, still outside does not look all that bad. Low Exc. $825.00 RARE
