Description

Once part of a larger grouping, I was able to obtain this several years ago, this single OD wool fur felt cap made by Luxenberg, and once worn by Major General William Henry Harrison Morris, Jr.  This was the only item available for sale. My source is a Virginia collector, who has offered me the opportunity to own many groups and individual pieces from many flag officers over decades, so without an ID on this cap, I am selling it on my word, and for not a great deal more than its value otherwise.

The body of the cap is fine, with only a few small issues, mainly the sweatband stitching popping in several areas. The brown leather visor and chinstraps, both front and rear, are all in fine shape.  The interior with Luxenberg label and protective lining are good, The cap eagle is made by N.S. Meyer, New York.

Cap is approximately a size 7.

General Morris (1890- 1971).  USMA Class of 1911.  2nd Lt. 19th Infantry, 5th Infantry in China, 1912-14. Battalion commander 360th Infantry Regiment in WWI, received the DSC & PH. Several assignments interwar period, the last being on staff at the War Department General Staff, Washington. He commanded the 6th Armored Div state side; as MGen. commanded II Armored Corps, and later reorganized as the XVIII Airborne Corps.  Early in 1945, commanded the 10th Armored Division, which played a vital role in the relief of Bastogne.  Morris had several commands following WWII, and retired in 1952.

This hat was initially priced at $400.00 but prices change when buying an entire collection. Priced very reasonable, and has not been offered by me before this listing.
