Picked this one up last year from eBay- used Milan straw Stratton. I think it was a Sheriff’s Dept hat, originally black but sun-faded to a chocolately brown. It had a cloth band that I replaced with leather. It’s become my primary scouting hat since felt is generally too hot for hiking where I live.

Here’s a long delayed rehab project. Here is an old Boy Scout hat. I cleaned it dropped in a new sweat. Then braided up a paracord hatband. My daughter loves it.

If anyone is interested, Coleman’s Military Surplus has used Army Drill Sergeant Campaign hats on sale for $19.95. They are only size 7 1/8, and are “soiled”. I figure for 20 bucks I’d take a chance.

Thanks for the link! There is no direct match but it seems to fit best in the 1920 to 1942 category.
Yes....on your dates and the cords are enlisted. Very often NCO's would buy nicer hats (private purchase) and other goods, which this would be (private purchase from a suppler). Officers clothes were ALL private purchase until 1942 when the Quartermaster Corps would start supplying them for the first time........
NICE Example!!!!!

Officers before WW2 had a wide degree of latitude on uniforms.....like all armies at the time. They bought their own and they had to have them made to the pattern but there was still some degree of individuality. That certainly could have been made custom by Stetson or modded by them. Also, Philly was where the USMC had much of their pre WW2 782 gear made at the Philadelphia Navy Yard Depot. (USMC gear made there would be marked DPQ.) It might be USMC.
