Original WWI Era U.S. Army M1902 Officer's Visor Cap by Pettibone Bros. Mfg. Co. - Excellent Condition
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice condition U.S. Army Officer's M1902 visor cap in very dark bue, intended to be worn by Officer's for dress and parade occasions. This example is particularly well made, with the officer's front insignia FULLY HAND EMBROIDERED in gold and silver bullion. Even the E PLURIBUS UNUM motto is embroidered. Officer's caps were usually privately purchased, and this officer apparently had a lot to spend.
The cap features a patent leather visor with, probably supported by pressed paper or fabric. The brown leather sweatband is stitched to the body of the hat, and is in excellent condition, marked with size 7. The crown of the cap is lined with black satin fabric, and is marked as follows:

The markings are in silver paint, and have virtually no wear. There is also a fabric tag at the back of the cap with the same information.
The front of the cap bears the correct gold U.S. Army Insignia, with a gold bullion adjustable chinstrap with two U.S. Army side buttons. No major moth issues to report, the hat is sound, not crushed or broken.
A great example to pick up a rare cap from the WWI Era!
