An absolutely beautiful visor here in nearly mint condition. This specific model of border guard hat was used between 1935 and 1954. Bright colors and very little wear is present. Split pin buttons attach the chinstrap of this visor. The cap star is a single piece, hot red enamel badge. There is some writing on the inside of the crown of this cap, possibly from its original owner, I cannot say. The sweatband is separated at the rear of the cap, but it is not fragile.
The color of the piping on this hat is more of a red then the standard raspberry, but this is easily attributed to manufacturing variations from one factory to another.
This is truly a rare find, especially in such amazing condition.
