Hat, Campaign, M1911, Infantry, WWI

Nice genuine WWI US Army M1911 Field Service Hat, complete with its original cord and acorns; the latter was initially light blue, thus indicating the branch of service (Infantry), yet most of the color has faded. Leather chinstrap is missing. Though partly legible, some markings have been inked on the reverse of the leather sweatband: one can still read New York Depot and Geo. Scofield.

The fact that this hat features five stitching lines on the outer edge of the brim, as well as two oblong eyelets intended for the leather chinstrap, indicates that it was manufactured circa 1917.

Size 6 7/8.

Very good overall condition in spite of a few stains and two minor holes.
