What you see is a used reproduction B-2 WW2 USAAF flight crew hat made by "Eastman Leather Company" located in England.Just like the original, this is made from 1/4 inch fleece depth shearling and has a stiff leather peak which is trimmed in Horsehide.
I have seen 12 o'clock high series where the crews of the B-17 are wearing them. This cap is a sheepskin-lined leather beauty that has seen very little use. Its brim is nice as well as entire cap.
The size is 7 1/8 (S) and it has a "Army Air Corps" logo on left side. All of the stitching is very sound and
the cap does not suffer from any "dry rot".. I would label this mint or slightly worn.. Just make sure the size is what you need..
~~~~JUST IN TIME FOR XMAS..~~~
No returns on wrong sizing.. ask questions before bidding..THX..
Shipping : $10 in the USA.
