  • Description: This is a post-war peaked cap (mens metric size 59) with slate blue cloth crown and black woven band with the three embroidered rank stars of a “Porucznik” (Lieutenant) at the front under a bullion wire Polish Air Force emblem (the Polish Eagle perched on an Amazon shield and flanked by stylized hussar wings). The patent leather peak has a double embroidered wire trim and a buckle-equipped black leather chinstrap is held by two eagle buttons at the front of the cap. The interior has a wide perforated leather comfort band, light blue satin lining, lozenge-shaped sweat shield, and maker's label. The cloth is in fine shape with some mild wear along the edge of the crown disk and the cap itself is slightly misshapen due to storage but this is easily rectified with a form. This is a neat piece of Polish militaria in very good-fine condition.
