The blue wool cap has a removable white cotton cover. The front of the cap displays a bullion anchor as worn by Chief Petty Officers. The prongs which secure one of the gilt side buttons have broken, but the button remains with the cap. The cap interior carries a cloth name tag. The cap is a bit flattened from storage, and overall the cap shows service wear but remains in very good condition.
