$35.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 172-5127

Image shows a three-quarter view of two sailors in U.S. Navy “crackerjack” uniforms with, “flat hats”, the style worn from 1852 until 1962. Enlisted sailors were issued a round, flat blue wool hat with a ribbon around the band similar to that worn by the Royal Navy. The "Donald Duck" was worn with the Service Dress Blue uniform on more formal occasions in lieu of the white "Dixie cup." The ribbon until 1941 carried the name of the wearer's ship embroidered in gold; as a wartime security measure this was replaced with a generic "U.S. Navy."  The sailor on the left’s hat is embroidered with “U.S.S. CHESTER”.

Image is clear with good contrast. Shows light oxidation in areas. Corners are clipped.  [sl]
