WWI Army Officer Visor Cap

A very nice example of a U.S. Army officer visor cap from World War I. The cap shows interior wear while the exterior presents an excellent shape and appearance. There are perhaps three small moth holes in the hat: one on the top, and two in the overhang on one side. The hole in the top is perhaps 1/4 of an inch long but only about 1/16 of an inch wide and the hole is in the wool top, so the interior lining of the top prevents the hole from being particularly noticeable. The two holes in the overhang are quite tiny and not really capable of measurement. A section of the leather chin strap across the visor is torn and missing, but the rest of the chin strap remains in place across the visor for its full length, and so the appearance overall remains very good.
