#DW26 Royal Canadian Navy Senior Officer's Peaked Cap
Original WWII Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) senior officer's peaked cap. This example seems to be early WWII quality and there is no visible maker's mark or name. It has been modified for use in summer / tropical conditions with a new sweatband installed and any excess materials removed. It shows service use with yellowing to the cover, but the components including the strap are intact without damage. The cap would likely look even better if left on a form for a while to regain and hold the shape. $250

Original WWII Canadian Army "Yukon" winter cap. Good condition example with just a few tiny moth nips. Produced by the Buffalo Cap and Neckware Company in 1940 in size 7 1/8 and stamped accordingly in yellow ink. $40
