The cap is named to Lieutenant C.L.N. Erdman. The cap is tagged as a size 7 1/4. It has typical age crazing of the visor. The gold chin cord is nicely toned. The white cotton top is quite clean. The interior shows wear and use, and the leather sweat band is detached in one or two spots, but it remains intact and complete. The cap is identified as "The Commodore" style, manufactured by the Ratner Company. It is in overall very good used condition.
