Auction has ended.
This is believed to be a mid level officer's hat from WW II, probably from Italy but could be from another European military.
This hat was taken to The Tin Soldier, at 222 Vernon Street in Downtown Roseville, for authentication. The Tin Soldier has been in the war memorabilia business for 33 years and is well qualified to authenticate items like this. The identification is Ken’s, from The Tin Soldier opinion, which we believe is correct.
