SOLD

An early example of a British Army Officers Service Dress Peaked Cap with bronzed OSD cap badge to the Royal Army Service Corps.

This cap is a nice early stiff shape and features the green under-peak often associated with early manufactured caps. It also has officers quality buttons which hold on a nice chestnut brown chinstrap.

Inside the cap features its original size label which is typical of the 1930s and 40s in its shape and design etc. It reads 7 1/8 making this a good wearable size cap.

The cap features a deep leather sweatband to the interior which is another good sign for it being an early cap. Earlier British headwear almost always has a deep headband such as this example with smaller headbands coming in as an austerity measure during the war. These smaller bands were continued after the war.

The cap is in average condition for its age and has some marks to the edge of the peak as well as some spotting to the top of the peak. There are other various small marks to the top of the hat but all of this can be seen in the photographs.

All in all a nice early hat with a typical early shape and in a good wearable size.
