Navy Officers Hat, Epaulettes, and Case. Hat is in OK shape for its age. Measures about 22.5 around inside (seems big for that time, to me). Hat is marked: The Mark of Merritt Government Standard. Meyer New York Army Navy Equipments. Epaulettes are marked: Made in France. Tin has Initials JLC on top. Tins clasp is missing. Metal ring where hat crown rests needs re-attached. One of the clips that helps hold the epaulettes needs reattached. I assume this is WWI and post period (WWII), especially given the tin container. Nice set of items for the collector / museum. I have more military items in my store. You will have fun browsing. Thank you for taking your time to look. Thank you for your understanding. Again, thank you for your understanding.
