This is an extremely fine Korean War U. Marine Corp P44 Utility Cap in near mint condition.
It is constructed of Marine Corps green herringbone twill material with a machine stitched reenforced short visor. There is no fraying to the visor as normally encountered on these. It is boldly stenciled with the Marine eagle, globe, and anchor on the front. The interior features an HBT sweatband and a white oil cloth label that reads in part, LILLY-AMES CO.
The tag gives the size as, LARGE. Very seldom encountered in this condition and large size. A killer example that remains in undamaged and near mint condition. The P44 Utility Cap differs from the U. Army M1941 type in that the P44 does not have a pleat at the front center and no pleat between the two green finished metal vent holes at the sides.The item "KOREAN WAR U.
