This fine cap was made to order by FRED M. BATCHELDER CO., who operated in BOSTON and CHICAGO as UNIFORM MAKERS, as marked on the crown of the cap. This company was well known for fine quality hats and uniforms for all types of organizations, both military and civic. It features a black patent leather covered visor and an embroidered silver bullion American eagle over gold bullion anchor cap badge with a knotted bullion rope chinstrap.
