Description

HAT – WINTER FIELD, MINT,, WITH TAG 6-25-1919 AND MARKED SIZE 7-1/4 (FITS SIZE 7-3/8). THE MILITARY CONTRACTS RAN FROM JULY TO JULY OF EACH YEAR (FISCAL YEAR), SO THIS
CAP WAS MADE ON A CONTRACT PLACED AFTER JULY OF 1918. THAT IS WHY WE SEE SO MUCH 1919 DATED MATERIAL. WHEN THE WAR ENDED THE ARMY LEFT ALL OF THE CONTRACTS PLACED BEFORE THAT CONTINUE TO RUN, OTHERWISE THE COMPANIES WOULD HAVE GONE BANLRUPT WITH ALL OF THE MATERIAL THEY HAD ON HAND FOR THE BIG 1919 PLANNED OFFENSIVE WITH 3 MILLION SOLDIERS IN FRANCE. THIS CAP HAS A SN OF OWNER INSIDE BUT NEVER WORN.
