This interesting item is produced in a light green wool that is as clean as a whistle! There are two rows of dark blue piping around the center of the cap. Each side has a pair of green ventilation holes. The visor is covered in the same material as the rest of the cap. There is a light brown leather chinstrap with a brass buckle. A small lion, finished in brown, is seen between the blue piping at the front of the cap. There is a gilt button with a lion that holds the gold and orange cloth cockade to the cap. The interior is fully lined with a gold cloth that is excellent! There is a maker’s stamp at the top of the dome. There is a brown leather sweatband which has a small tag at the rear that indicates the size of the cap, which is “58”. Underneath the sweatband there are a few markings; one is of a maker, which is “I.M.M.”. Other markings are hand written and include “VH. 2D 52 58” and “842”. Excellent and hard to find!
