Identified to a Lt. Commander from California, Maryland
Typical but a very nice example of US Navy officer’s hat worn by an identified Lt. Commander from California, Maryland. The hat has a nice white cover with stiffener, made by The Commodore, Featherweight Deluxe Designed and Manufactured by Ratner. The bullion on the hat is toned a bit, but has a period salty look.
I have no information on the Lt. Comdr.
