For sale here is a great looking US WW2 Army Enlisted TRUE CRUSHER. This one des not have a maker's mark that i can see. There is a sticker under the sweatband that appears to be a price tag from J. This is a very nice cap in choice condition.The body of this cap is made of fine doeskin wool felt. The cap is complete with brown leather chin strap, back strap, and single ply banded bill.
The cap has a brass enlisted roundel and brass buttons that show some patina. The chin strap and back strap are finished in a high gloss finish. The bill is also finished in high gloss.
The leather all looks great and is very soft and supple. The is some minor cracking on the edge banding.Otherwise, the exterior of the cap looks great with only light wear and soiling. There is one moth bit under a fold and there is a surface track on the top of the cap that is nearly impossible to see. The bill is thin and hyper flexible. Inside, the cap is partially lined in off white satin and there is a full coverage sweat shield that has not darkened. The sweat shield is not brittle and is not breaking. The only marking in the cap is the size 7 under the sweat shield. The leather sweatband is fully perforated and is very supple, and doesn't show a great deal of wear. The sweatband is fully and tightly attached.
The bottom of the leather bill is a soft suede natural color. Interestingly, the front of the cap is padded with red velvet.The cap is marked size 7, but fits more like a 7 1/8. This is a very fine cap that will be very very difficult to upgrade!
