The family and I made a run north across the border into South Dakota today. Hit 6 antique shops. 5 of the 6 were nice, clean, organized, etc. The other one was a DUMP! Smelled bad, unorganized, and had three kittens running around. MY KIND OF PLACE! Here is what was in the corner. If anyone can find info on the guy, please advise. Also, how do I clean the leather on the visor cap? ENJOY!

As far as the leather - a damp cloth is all you need. I would leave the leather alone beyond that. That is one NICE AAF patch! I love it!!

Agreed costa. My rule of thumb is pretty simple. If something is soiled, or just dusty from age/storage, a damp rag will clean an item up pretty well. When you start puting substances on your leather, or anything for that matter, you are altering the originality of the item in question. A lot of collectors, especially the "purests", will shy away from an item that has been treated. An exception would be, for instance, a Civil War cartridge box, where the leather is crazing and flaking with the slightest amount of handling. Sometimes, a treatment with a professional grade leather conservative, (Nothing you would buy in a hadware store) will do the trick. Just keep in mine, this is refered to as "preservation". In the case of your hat, I think it looks fine. A few defects from age are great earmarks of originality.

Personally I like the natural age marks on leather. They are something that can not be easily forged and believe me you will see the day when nice caps like that will replicated.

By the way that is a killer blouse. I would have whistled, hummed and grinned all the way home. thumbsup.gif:D


This DAY of FREEDOM brought to you by current Military Personnel and Veterans.

! HAVE A NICE DAY !
