WWII Or Before Japanese Army Imperial Guard Dress Cap. Red wool body with gold bullion (?) woven details. Has the basic stamped metal cap badge. This hat has some minor surface mothing and there is some wear on the front of the leather visor. The black silk lining has bug damage. These minor condition problems, can be overlooked when you consider just how rare this visor hat is. I have been travelling to Japan two and three times a year for the last 18 years, and this is the first one I have ever seen for sale there. Also comes with its original cardboard storage box. Bow shows wear and has sepearted on a couple of seams, but still nice. Small size.
