A nice 1922 USMC service cover from my collection.

 

As issued to PFC Thomas A VanHorne who served in Nicaragua with 2Bde Air Squadrons in 1930.

 

It has remnants of the G W Alexander Co, Reading, PA Contract stamp. Date is unclear, but is pre 1929 as VanHorne enlisted 25 Feb 1929.


EGA is 1920’s vintage and original to the cover. I added the strap which is an unissued original.C17CBD15-8DB3-4618-9FF0-94558C9BC60E.jpeg.5ad79e451af76cf2fc7442df9e1f454c.jpeg26222C48-1287-4F80-82F0-2A4F867D8DA8.jpeg.5b7a96389bee6f5d873f6b13f390beee.jpegF667BD59-FECB-4BBC-AE94-DA883F33F14A.jpeg.3627eb4451195d2103698552bd49d4b6.jpeg54EB710B-9543-4E9F-B590-FD06BEDC1413.jpeg.b07e6a8cbfb77cbf9cd5bdfee176346e.jpegCCC5ADAA-E333-4720-A074-EFC5F2708754.jpeg.1fa628af2217ca5768c204de91425138.jpeg297135A5-2EF6-45D3-B77F-B2A8ED629155.jpeg.6afe6c2c0e53a13c4c6ed5dd307c492f.jpeg2A078DE6-C396-423C-8268-3B28FBCCF2AF.jpeg.cc4ef8fd08e9b9f9db1a0082f8a4696c.jpeg402E3D28-B734-47E0-8A67-C97963496DAB.jpeg.609b08fc6c1cd4e0d1a3f4c946d10775.jpeg10E48343-0427-4B60-B4F4-4C4573632D2E.jpeg.bb9ebe4da6c8659fae88e4fbcb0e1090.jpeg33A0D477-B9F1-460F-9024-9F7B7DD35282.jpeg.6d1ccd7269add50036020447ec60d2ef.jpegB645E060-6F7C-46C5-A6D8-49F8D4E18C66.jpeg.c1311ae2a6e13de6c8449f26726c7109.jpeg640C9B97-6C0C-491E-8297-E14ABE6661F1.jpeg.955f20d1176ffeaf90392653e620fa00.jpeg192CA5B7-918D-44E4-B3D3-B987C5DC357F.jpeg.e0aa9b0a973edae6568ac43c6321123c.jpeg

That is one stunning example.  I especially like the curve of the brim.

Very nice cover. I have seen several campaign hat attributed to Marines in the Banana War time frame, including a couple in my own collection and they all have the two row stitching at the brim. Yours is exceptionally nice. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice hat.  IMO these interwar Marine campaign hats are harder to find than those from WWI.  I have a few of them myself.  

Thanks for sharing it with us.
