$30.00

United States (U.S.) Army Armored Light Weight Khaki (Tan) Garrison Cap. Piping is green and white for armored troops. Size tag marked 7 3/8. Most likely 1940s-1950s (WW2-Korea) era. Worn condition.

 

Additional Notes: For garrison caps, there were two basic styles, the PX (Post Exchange) style and the Issue style.  The PX style has squared ends to the garrison cap.  The PX style caps were typically purchased privately by soldiers and sold in the PX’s, department stores, and tailor shops around the country. This PX style is rectangular in appearance and does not have the pleat in the top as seen in the Issue style caps.  The Issue style cap was issued to all troops by the Quartermaster of the U.S. Army. The Issue style caps have a pleated top and is similar in profile to the cap worn in World War I. The top curves upward from the rear and slopes downward toward the front. Both PX and Issue style caps were widely worn and both are equally correct for display and use.
