    Bancroft USAF Peak Cap but in black not AF Blue??

    Post by Gulf91 on Tue Dec 24, 2013 10:20 am

    Was bought off Ebay as an USAF peak cap but when it arrived its either black or a very very dark navy blue. Also has unknown to be chinstrap buttons so am thinking its not a USAF cap but somebody has added a USAF cap device.

    Many Thanks.

    It's an airline hat. Buttons are a generic type used on coats and caps for several airlines. Badge looks like an older officer badge. Is it brass or coated silver?

    Thanks Fins.

    Not sure what the badge is,it looks to be a bronzed type of finish.

    Reminds me of the older 50's-early 60's finish. The badge is definately good.

    No. it should have a badge from one of the airline companies. Those are always missing from the caps and the wings from the jackets.. LOL
