This is a Vintage US Army Twill Cap, dated to 26th of June 1953. It is issued during the Korean War, that lasted from June 1950 - July 1953. The cap is made out of olive green twill, it's pleated around the whole crown and this is gives it a chesty silhouette, thus the nick name chesty cap. The Visor is soft, but still quite sturdy, since it's made out of multiple layers of fabric.
The condition of the cap is amazing for being 70 years old. There are no rips, tear, stains or holes. It's probably been washed a couple of time, but still the color is barely faded at all.
We have measured the circumference on the inside of the hat and it measures to 53 cm. Which is the same as 6 5/8 in US Hat Size or 20 7/8". Or simply just Small.
Please make sure to measure your head and make sure this fits, prior to ordering.
