This is another of the hats I am keeping from the huge hat collection I recently picked up. It is a Pre WWII visor and the condition is just simply excellent. The bullion badge is really well done as well.

If the eagle head faces its left, it's pre 1941 manufacture.

Why did they change the eagle head to the right?

Why did they change the eagle head to the right?

Traditionally, the right side is considered the side of honor, while the left side is seen as dishonorable in some fashion.
