Exterior of this cap is near mint condition having mercury gilt piping and gilt metal insignia. The piping butts extremely tight both on the silver bullion and on the purple judicial style piping on the middle and lower parts of the cap. There is one small tear, though not noticable as it is under the tail on the back of the cap, about an inch and a half near the seam. The underside is a nice yellow satin material with a fully intact sweat diamond. The cap is extremely hard to find.
