There mothing and tracks all over the cap, its still solid, and has the original gold pebbled button to the front and a silver wash eagle as well. It has a gold liner thats torn in several areas, no RZM tag. I really don't know any more about it, but its showing lots of age, the sweatband is nice, but the cap was poorly stored after the war and hench its present condition. There's no chinstrap and it appears to never have had one.

The RZM tag is fantastic, but yes it has some mothing.

Tan twill wool, the cap shows normal use, and the only issue outside is a small hole near the front. Its not mothing, but a light tear, otherwise no mothing. Eagle is a nice gilt finish as well as the wreath, the chincord is a fine aged gilt bullion cord, darking over time. Brown bill is smooth on the underside.
Soft Light tan leather sweatband, has a few small holes near the edge. The liner is a fine quality gold silk, and this was a talior made cap of high value for its time based on materials. The best part is the cap is named to the owner! Nicely typed in old script shows the street address. Inside the liner is a mint RZM tag, and there also is a period applied wax paper folded up and placed inside the band to make it smaller. Worn, but still OK and a rare piping! This cap is a big size 60.
