Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent example of a WWII U.S. Navy Junior Officer "Complete" Cap, also called the "Combination" cap. Naval officers wore a variety of different colored uniforms in service, for different locations and occasions, so a cap was designed that could utilize various removable covers to match the uniform. The standard colors were White, Khaki, Navy Blue, and Gray. The U.S. Coast Guard also wore the same caps, however they use a different cap badge with a larger eagle and a single anchor instead of two.

This totally correct high quality genuine World War II U.S. Navy junior officer complete visor hat features a wonderful cast metal eagle cap badge, patent leather visor and gold bullion chinstrap. Inside is an original manufacturer's label that reads:

The Commodore
Designed and
Manufactured by
RATNER
San Diego, California

The cap has a lovely internal wicker frame, still in great shape, and also has the crown stiffener, which really helps maintain the shape. The oilcloth top lining is still intact, as well as the plastic sweat shield. The cap shows no major defects but does have light wear and some moth nips. Tt is in overall very good condition with slight discoloration in spots. Hat size is a US 7 with original size label still intact under the sweatband.
