A real Looker!
This is a wonderful example for the pre World War I full dress artillery officer’s hat. Made by H.V. Allien & Co. New York. The bullion is nicely raised giving a three dimensional effect.
The hat is clean, appears to be void of moth nips, only the slightest toning on the bullion. The interior is quality as well. The visor has a serious drop to it similar to British caps of the same period and before, I think this is one of the early transitional’s from the 1902 pattern. The visor has had a bit of heat affect it’s leather finish and has that typical alligator skin look. Size approx. 6 3/4-7/8.
A real honey!
