Super Silver and Gold Bullion Insignia!
The commander grade hat with the white cover, has a stunning bullion silver and gold eagle/anchors insignia in super bright color and a flash of red in the beak to set if off. The “scrambled egg” is directly embroidered to a black felt backing applied to the visor. If you like your hats salty then this white is that. Probably worn during the war and never worn again allowing the sweat and other oils etc, to turn this cover to an uneven tan. It certainly is honest.
Made by BANCROFT and the retailer is Scott & Company, Boston. Inside on the crown protective lining is the personal card for Dr. Olin C. Hendrix. I have not found any detail on him, other than very minimal data on a personal family website.
Other than a soiled white cover, the hat is truly in remarkable condition, especially the eagle insignia.
