Original WWII WW2 US Army Air Corps AAF Bancroft Crusher Cap Flighter. Man, talk about a hat that has seen some action.
This cap was recently pulled out of a local storage unit, but aside from that, there is no other history with it. It was manufactured by Bancroft and is the "Flighter" model. If you are a purist, this is the only "true" crusher cap as it was manufactured with the intent to be rolled up and stuck the pocket of one's flight jacket.This one however is not mint. It's almost as flat as a pancake, like it was stuffed in someones footlocker for about 70 years and left there.
There is a spot on the top/side of the hat that looks like maybe a rat got to it and snacked on it for a while. Please carefully review all photos and understand that this cap was not a "shelf queen" it's has been worn long and hard which is evident by the overall appearance of the cap. Despite the damage, this is a very hard to find cap now days and display enough wear for you to know that it definitely saw some action back in the day. I can provide more photos upon request if needed. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\WW II (1939-45)\Original Period Items\United States\Hats & Helmets".
