1895 Dress Cap: Indian Wars-Spanish American War uniform cap, model 1895.  Lacking top condition but priced right for someone needing a display example. ID'd inside to WCC which may be Western Costume Company.  They rented gear to the movie houses and this hat may have seen action in old Western movies.  Lining is missing and/or torn; sweat band missing pieces; several moth holes.  Please see photos for condition.  I  bought this from a well known militaria dealer and I am sure I paid more than what I am asking.
Item # 1895  $139.00

BILLED VISOR COVER:  I believe this is U.S. Navy, but am not sure.  It has a size tag of 6 3/4 and no other tags.  The lining is gray, there is a hole from using an insignia with it so I think this has been on a frame.  However, it is bright and clean with no problems.

BILLED VISOR COVER by BANCROFT:  I believe this is U.S. Navy, but am not certain.  It was made by BANCROFT and it has a plastic lining on which the labels are fixed over the gold lining.  It is black and has a full elastic band. Appears to not have been used and is bright and clean with the exception of lint or fuzz as seen in the photos which will brush off. Manufactured side holes for the buttons/studs.
BILLED VISOR COVER by BANCROFT:  I believe this is U.S. Navy, with the green color indicating the AVIATION branch.  It was made by BANCROFT and has a plastic lining on which the labels are fixed and over that is a cardboard insert.  The lining is gold colored satin-like material.  On the cardboard insert is the size of 7-1/2.  Manufactured side holes for the attaching buttons/studs.  I see no problems with it. 
CAP, WW1 DISABLED AMERICAN VETERANS, POST NO. 1, FRESNO, CALIFORNIA:
This old cap has a 2" patch on one side and a metal, nickel sized medallion on the other side and both read "WORLD WAR".  I believe that would make it WW1 since that was the only World War at that time.  I see no holes or damage but it needs to be cleaned.  It has a leather sweat band with the retailer's name embossed on it; Los Angeles, Calif.   It is a size 7-1/8.  
1950's HELMET LINER:  Looks to have a 1957 manufacture date.  Appropriate for Vietnam War use but this is awfully nice inside to have had much wearing.  Complete with the chin strap.  I could find nothing wrong with this liner; it looks like a good one to me.  However, the original exterior paint has lots of scuffs etc.  All of the suspension metal parts are black painted steel with the exception of the nape strap snaps which are earlier blackened brass.
Item # 317503  $59.00
DOUBLE DECAL, VIETNAM WAR ERA, LINER:  33rd Division decal on left side and 129th Regional Training Institute decal on the right side.  Suspension webbing is later dark green with black painted steel "A" washers.  Headband is 1966 and attached with black painted steel clips.  The nape strap is HBT, WW2 type. The headband is ID'd on the back side.  Decals were applied after repaint which is now chipped and has dried mud on it.  Chin strap buckle is broken.  Westinghouse made with logo inside of crown.  More info is on the photos.

AMVETS "CHARTER MEMBER" CAP:  Cap is patched with the AMVETs, Korea/Vietnam patch.  It has a Charter Member pin on the side.  The yellow piping is frayed in one area as shown in the photos.  Buy it for the price of the patch and pin.

MODEL 1889 CAMPAIGN HAT:  From my personal collection I offer this early 1889 campaign hat.  It has the two row stitching on the brim which changed to 3 rows in the early 1890's.  Has the "snowflake" pattern side vents. There is a hole from flexing the crease at the front and a break in the felt at the back caused by the same flexing.  The only readable tag is the size tag.  This is the real deal and is in very good condition for these early hats.

USMC HAT, ID'd TO MARINE, WORTHY OF RESEARCH:  ID'd to Mark Allen Potter, b.1953 - d.1979.  Only thing I could find was his grave marker, it's location and his birth and death dates.  He was only 26 years old when he passed.  He was a Sgt. so he may have been a career marine.  Perhaps someone with more access to research can finish the research.
From Sgt. Potter's statistics the hat will date between 1971-1979.  It has Sgt. Potter's name stenciled on the back of the chin strap and on the inside of the leather sweatband. The inside protective plastic lining is torn and has some tape where a repair was tried.  Sweatband is pretty solid but the rear seam is un-sewn. You can see it's condition in the photos.  The forest green cover has 7 - 8 moth holes on the bottom side of the crown.  They are not readily visible unless you turn the hat over.  I have marked them with arrows on the photos.     I pulled the EGA badge and it is not Hallmarked.  Overall the hat is decent looking with research potential.
Item # he620040  $69.00
WW2 "CRUSHER", DOBB'S FIFTH AVENUE:  Only negative I see with this WW2 veteran is darkening and staining of the lining and some looseness of the gold fabric.  Take a look at the photos. Excellent hat.
Item # he620041  $295.00
OFFICER'S HAT GOLD CHIN STRAP:  1/2" wide gold lace on a leather backing. New, old stock.  In the bag were two braided straps which I presume are sleeve braid?

  The Overseas/Garrison cap is in excellent condition with no holes or damage.  Well marked inside with the British proof Broad Arrow.  The unit disk may also be theater made as the retaining nut is different from US patterns i have seen..  The photo is a French made Post Card and is dated 12/1/18, It is clear enough to see the crossed rifles on the insignia disk. The small photo of the man with the billed visor hat may be the soldier in later years, don't know?
