Pasquale Naval Visor Cap

Recommended Posts

I am a big fan of Pasquale items and this is my latest find. It is a naval visor for an officer. Interestingly the badge is not hallmarked Pasquale bit is marked Sterling and 1/10 GF on Sterling.

Gary-

Very nice hat! I don't believe a Pasquale marked USN officers hat badge exists. So, not surprising your badge isn't so hallmarked.

I haven't seen a large size Pasquale marked hat badge, but somewhere around here I've got a garrison cover sized Pasquale marked hat device.

Aah, Pasquale, local home grown outfitters. I Know a fellow collector here who used to work for them before they closed down, cant remember when. 70's I think.

I have a staff sergeants m26 uniform circa 1930 to the 30th Infantry (San Francisco's Own that were garrisoned here in the Army's most beautiful base, The Presidio) that has the cap and most of the insignia on the coat made be Pasquale.

Being a "maker hallmark freak", that's something I'll have to keep an eye out for. It would also be cool if there actually is a large size USN hat badge hallmarked by Pasqule.

Here is an interesting old Pasquale bell crown cap. The cap is configured as an old Metropolitan Police cap but who knows what it might have started out life as?

Finally, a view of the sweatband showing the embossed Pasquale logo.

GARY CAIN: Saw a Pasquale catalogue for about 1911 go for US$250.00 on eBay Auctions, would you believe it? I collect catalogues from 1891-1953 and scanned all of mine to CDs, quit bidding on the Pasquale catalogue after it reached US$35.00! Nice winter visored cap for a naval officer.

Hi Sarge,

 

Do you reeeally live in Tujunga? My grandfather built the second house in Tujunga at 10020 Breidt street. I lived there till I was 8, then moved to Santa Barbara.

 

Thats amazing about the catalogue! Oh well, the old adage about the fool and his money is allways applicable!

 

Cheers

Gary

GARY: Have been on Foothill Boulevard near the corner of Tujunga Canyon Boulevard since 1999 after living in Sylmar since 1985. I'm surprised someone here has not claimed to be related to the original Indians here and opened a casino? Yes, those fools spend all sorts of money on eBay Auctions, to be sure!

I know this is a very old thread but I have this very hard to find hallmarked hat badge in my collection. http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...howtopic=146824 It is in the 1st picture in this thread (the bottom eagle not attached to the hat). I will post pictures of the back showing the hallmark when I get home. The other hat badge is marked blackington

 

I have been trying to find a value to both of these pin but I can not find any to refference it them either on this site or ebay.

I have just finished restoring a Pasquale Model 1883 Naval Officer's cap. It was kind of trashed. Only part of the label remains. But it was cheap.

Since this site is so cheap with image sizes - I will just have to keep adding replys. Here is the inside with the sweat band being repaired and stablized (with dark blue material. You can see what is left of the label.

Here is some work on the visor (top). It was sanded, filled, sanded, painted, and then split polished.

Here is the cap now - after reshaping, repaired sweat band (not finished - needs softening treatment), redoing the top of visor, and replacing missing green moroccan leather (under side of visor), and repairing a few small moth holes. The wood in the cap is for shaping, as is the white cardboard.
