There is Tarnish on the Eagle Emblem and also looks like Emblem has a slight bend at top where it aligns with top of Cap. I did not try to clean the tarnish or the cap felt. It is much better knowing this is pretty much how it looked when the Officer took it off his head for the last time.
I believe this hat was known as a "Flighter" as the cap still has the yellow support band/rope inside. Our guys would remove this so they could wear their Headsets over their caps when in Aircraft-hence obtaining the name "Crusher" Hat.
