This straw hat was made in the form of bowler with a turned-up brim, but very wide somewhat like a sailor’s cap, which displays a tally band sewn around the edge. The tally is of typical form with gilt letters on a black ground, and reads, “U.S. Marine.” The interior of the hat shows a narrow cloth binding around the lower edge of the crown to help it keep its form, and cloth size tag reading “2.” A thin, light-brown leather sweatband is inside, complete, but detached. The hat likely dates about 1900-1920 and may be a “U.S. Marine” counterpart to the sailor-themed beachwear popular at the time.  [sr]
