WWII U.S. NAVY PRISON YARD MADE HAT

Today it's a cool hat I found... A U.S. Navy WWII Prison Hat!
You don't see these laying around everyday.... Made as the card says... in 1944.

Not sure if this was prison labor but it probably was.

Check out this detail! it's mirrored on the other side. Super heavy wool tweed.

6 panel cap. Not sure how you wear it? like a bucket or like this?

either way it's a cool piece. I'm actually going to be putting up on the bay as it's not my size and I generally like to just keep stuff that I can actually use. Anyone a size 7?
Cool things like this are what being a vintage gear guy is all about...
