The body shows soiling wear, and a few pique scuffs on the top and on the front. There are a few minor holes, but these are moth bites, but are piques, as is common with this fabric. The cap does not have a mohair band, and it doesn't appear that it ever did.
The front of the cap has a screw back Enlisted roundel, and there are no signs that there was ever and Officer's eagle on the front. The brown leather chin cord is held in place by two prong back gold US Army buttons. The cord has stiffened a bit, but is supple and will slide.The cord shows some surface scuffing and age. The leather bill is only one layer thick and it does show some of the same scuffing that the cord shows. Strangely, the leather bill is banded.
The banding is fabric with a brown coating. The coating to the banding is flaking and there is substantial finish loss that shows a brownish fabric. I think the bill and cord issues could be cleaned up with some brown leather polish, which would make the cap look 100% better. Inside, the hat has a brown leather sweatband that is perforated all of the way around.The sweatband shows use, age, and wear, but is almost 100% held in place by original stitching. There is about a 1 section where the stitching has let go on the wearer's left rear. The top of the cap and the front riser are lined with gold satin. The front riser is not very rigid. The leather sweatband is also back with gold satin.
The majority of the top of the cap has a sweat shield that has completely darkened. If there was a maker mark in the dome, it cannot be seen now. The darkened sweat shield is now a bit stiff, but isn't falling apart.
I cannot find any names or markings anywhere in the hat. The hat is small, and i would guess it to be a size 7 based on how it sits on my head. Even with the condition issues, this is a rare cap.It is a great candidate for a little cleanup of the bill and cord. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.
