A Second War American Naval Pilot's Visor

A Second War American Naval Pilot's Visor -  The exterior of this cap is fabricated from black wool, with a 35 mm wide black cotton exterior headband, two small brass United States Navy buttons on either side, each with the traditional eagle and anchor surrounded by thirteen stars insignia, supporting a multi-textured gold-colored bullion chin strip with a leather backer across the cap`s brim, the chin strap with two adjustable sliders, raised crown at the front and sloping towards the rear, in a traditional saddle shape. The upper on the brim is fabricated from black patent leather and trimmed in leather, fronted by a two-piece United States Navy insignia, the eagle standing upon the shield in silver, overlaying a base of crossed anchors, affixed via two screwbacks to a reinforced black wool backer, the insignia measuring 60 mm x 70 mm. The inside has a dark brown leather sweatband with multiple ventilation holes around the circumference, the two ends of the sweatband tied together at the rear via a white ribbon in a traditional bow-tie. The underside of the brim in forest green nylon, the reinforced brim very stiff. The dome has a full-length elongated oval-shaped cloth patch, running from front to back, the upper of the patch with a moisture-resistant finish, a protective celluloid moisture shield sewn in place, with the "NAVAL UNIFORM SERVICE Under Supervision U.S. Navy" manufacturer`s name printed on the underlying cloth patch, measuring 260 mm x 285 mm x 90 mm in height. The black patent leather brim exhibits deep scratches and moderate crazing, the sweatband has separated from the body of the cap on the left side, the moisture shield has yellowed and has experienced fragmentation in one corner, with spots of white paint evident on the underside of the brim and in the dome. The exterior black wool remains relatively clean and free of fabric interruptions and mothing, with intact stitching. Very fine.
