A selection of genuine original US Army M1950 Side Caps in unissued 'old stock' condition with some wear and distress.
Manufactured in the 1950 to 1970 period for the US Army. These caps have never been issued or used, and the majority retain their original paper or cotton tags; Caps are sold without any holes, tears or broken stitching. However, due to the age of the caps (some over 60 years old) and the long time they have spent in storage, the caps exhibit signs of distress such as wrinkled, creased, and discoloured fabric; small rust stains (where original metal staples and paperclips remain in place with tags attached); and handwritten ink marks (inside headbands) to record the hat sizes after the original size stamp faded.
Caps are constructed of a light khaki coloured cotton chino fabric. All caps are a very small size (Hat size 6.5) intended for 52cm head circumference, please be aware of this when ordering.
