1935 SEARS NEWSBOY CAP IN BOX WITH PAPERS

So today it's my pride and joy of vintage caps... my 1935 Sears "Newsboy" Cap!
I don't wear it much because of it's condition and what came with it.

the ink of the "SeeRoe Supreme Cap" was smeared when I got it.

Cap came in it's original box! Original tissue paper inside lining....

It's in mint condition.

Original paperwork from sears and the original order from the people who ordered it...


Her original order and letter to sears... dated 1935.
A paper from sears about the new Illinois sales tax for 1935.

all the goodies.

the original box.

So in 1935 this cap would set you back .89 cents. This is vintage gear for guys!
