You are bidding on a very desirable WW1 P1912 USMC enlisted dress blue cap in fine condition. It displays no mothing and only slight crazing cracking to the leather bill. The wicker frame is stiff and in original shape. The leather sweatband is complete and intact. The EGA is a nice salty "trenched" piece, with the wings having been stylized and swept upward. These devices are super hard to find. This was a trait done by seagoing and old salt Marines and was against regulations. The device still shows signs of jewelers rouge and polishing compound. Listed at no reserve.
