USAAF 'Tropical' Bancroft Visor Cap
Bancroft 'Flighter'. Smallish (63/4 -7?). Pale tan cotton lightweight cap with a single thickness chocolate brown peak - the sign of a genuine crusher (folding) cap. Yellow satin lining with greasecloth crown. The cap does have some moth damage with approximately 5 small holes on the crown and more around the side panel (see photos for examples of this). Some staining/spot marks on the crown. Light wear to the edge of the peak but this remains flexible. Excellent one-piece badge with screw post fixing. The greasepaper liner is discoloured / wrinkled as usual but the Bancroft logo is visible beneath. Perforated inner leather band shows wear/soiling but again the 'Curve Controlled Flighter' logo are clearly visible. Named to the owner. Fair '+' /quite good used overall. Bancroft caps are considered by most collectors to be the finest available and the 'Flighter' is always highly sought after. More photos available on request. Stock code U19342.
