Anyone know this hat and device?

Recommended Posts

Looking for info on this hat. Everything about it reminds me of a military academy. Thanks for any help.20BBDD83-E7E2-45D9-8C94-7D37BAABA1C3.jpeg.a8b4e1e66677e72718f6868cc8c7a18d.jpeg

Better image, thanks.  I'm not certain but my money is on it being a military academy hat, possibly Chamberlain-Hunt Academy.  I hope someone else knows for sure

Definitely a cadet cap.  The mohair band and crown piping were originally black but have faded to a purplish color.  We used to take a magic marker and darken ours again.  Not familiar with the school but the cap is relatively recent so it shouldn't be hard to find.


Looking for older Virginia Military Institute items: insignia, uniforms, cadet sabers, documents, and groupings belonging to VMI alumni.

Also interested in Virginia Reserve Militia (VRM) uniforms and insignia, or other items of general Virginia interest.

What does it show on the side buttons that hold the hatband/chinstrap on?
