This cap is a definite been there and seen action as it has nice wear and some saltiness overall. It has the original neck flap, is marked inside and dated 1942 and a size 58 1/2. The chin strap is solidly intact, though does show some age wear from the heat and perspiration of the original wearer. There is wear to the eagle but the main body of the eagle is perfectly intact. A gorgeous hat, something for one who wants a hat that has actually seen Africa.
