A beautiful early War example of an RAF officers peaked cap which would be ideal for a Battle of Britain collector or display.
This fantastic cap has al the traits of an early hat featuring a large D shaped peak with the green leather underside, high sides, stiff crown and quilted lining which give it that classic Battle of Britain look. The leather sweatband inside is also very deep which is typical of pre-War British headwear.
The overall condition of the hat is very good aside from some marking to the top and a number of holes along the front of the peak. The chin strap is also missing but these factors have been taken into account when pricing the cap.
The mohair band is in very good condition as are both the cloth covered chinstrap buttons. The bullion badge is an excellent example as can be seen in the pictures and is almost certainly original to the cap.
The cap is on the small side and I would say no bigger than a 6 7/8. Whilst maybe not ideal for re-enactment this hat makes an excellent display piece.
Overall, a truly stunning early War cap which would compliment any RAF collection without a doubt.
