Dear collectors,

 

Is this is a real World War l campaign hat, a Boy Scouts hat, or a later type?

 

Thanks,

Taj

This is a US Military campaign hat and it looks like it could date back to the WWI period, though these were worn clear into WWII. This also does not look like a modern drill instructor's hat. Boy Scout Campaign hats will have scouting badges embroidered into the band, so we can rule that out as well.

Isn't it also typical of WW1 Campaign Hats to have the chin strap go through holes punched in the brim and not through grommets?

An issue WWI Army campaign hat wouldn't have the grommets, so far as I am aware.  Also, the felt on this hat looks to be of a superior quality (heavier, stiffer) than an issue EM hat.  Maybe an officer hat but without the cord?
