USAAF Bancroft 'flighter' visor cap

USAAF Bancroft 'flighter' visor cap

Code: U22897

SOLD

Not sized but very small and believed to be approximately  63/8 (measures about 51.5cm).  Chocolate olive drab wool/gabardine with a dark yellow satin lining.  Mid tan leather bill/visor and front and rear straps.  The material is fairly clean and free of moth holes but there is some moth trailing on the crown - see photographs.  Both straps are good and the soft visor/peak is in super condition with a lovely clean underside.  Bancroft 'Flighter' markings to the inner leather band.  No patent numbers marked, indicating this to be of definite WW2 manufacture.  The greasepaper liner remains in place and the Bancroft logo can been seen on the satin beneath.  Good badge.  This is a true 'crusher' cap with a single thickness of leather on the peak making it very flexible.  Bancroft 'Flighters' are generally acknowledged as the cream of AAF caps.  A very good lightly used example.  Stock code U22897.
