The pattern 1902 service dress visor cap, in this case in OD wool, was another departure for the look of the Army’s headgear. The 1895 cap not been popular, and this new look was an attempt to mimic the European influence.
The contractor, SUSSKIND, has marked the cap under the sweatband, and some of the words are hard to read due to a poor stamp, not a condition issue. The shows very little use, with sweatband intact, sizing label present (6 3/4). There is some mothing on the right side at the seem of crown and body, over the vent holes, but very small and not noticable is displayed; minimal work to restore.
The black leather visor is fine with typical wrinkling from storage heat. The 2nd Infantry crossed rifle insignia looks original to the cap and retains most of the subdued finish.
A very nice example.
