Any idea how fast you were going back there? This is a fun and funky vintage cop hat, perfect for the eclectic collector.
The hat is dark blue and features the all the details of a classic police cap; wide crown, black leather visor, braided sweatband, etc.
This piece would be a great gift for a retired officer or fun costume hat for a "Gaga" look.
There are a few black grommets around the crown which, paired with the black braided sweatband, helps the hat ventilated.
There are silver-tone buttons on each side of the cap; they feature the letter "P" in the center and are surrounded by a lovely, three-dimensional olive-laurel.
Inside, the cap is lined with clear vinyl. It shows a fair amount of wear and spotting.
You can see the manufacturer's mark through the clear vinyl imprinted on the underside of the crown.
It reads "Donald S. Lavigne, Tailors and Uniform Makers, Miami".
There is another perforated leather sweatband that lines the inner-band; it shows some minor wear and scuffing.
While this cap shows some expected wear and a few loose threads, it remains in good vintage condition overall.
