Accidently posted this in the wrong forum. Hey everyone I just came into possession of this WWII era Army hat. Anyone know what specifically this hat is called? And if its worth anything? It also has a shrapnel hole in it, which I think might increase the value? Thanks for looking.

Yes, got it from a lady I work for and it was her father's who was in WWII in the army. So I'm positive it was Army issue from that time period.

Its a flight hat. My Dad had kept two of his from WWII and gave them to us kids many-a-year-ago, and yours looks like one of his.

Nope, no markings whatsoever. Anyone know of a website I could sell this on?
