From a Tucson estate some years ago and a compelling remembrance of they who also served is this distinctive and now uncommon WW2 ANC HDC Army Nurse Corps officer's OD wool service visor cap with the original officer's screwback gilt brass eagle device, this one once the property of Lieutenant M. Peterson... a wartime commissioned nurse. I will be listing a number of associated uniform items from this estate, including a very rare early dark blue version of the U.S. Nurse Corps Off Duty Dress (see my listings for these) . This particular cap was specific to the Army Nurse Corps, though the few commissioned hospital dietitians were allowed their use; if you are thinking nurse rather than WAC, this is the one. There is no maker or contract label, but there is a military size tag "22" (with inked "P", presumably for Peterson); there is further some sort of period inventory tag attached to the lining with "2598 / 206-2", though I have no idea what this refers. The hat is in excellent clean vintage condition though not absolutely perfect, with just three tiny imperfections to the wool to mention for complete accuracy...a small pinhead size hole near the peak welt and a couple of really, really ( I mean really) tiny pinpoint nips seen under close inspection to the underside of the visor. The wool is otherwise in great shape, as is the grosgrain sweatband and liner - from the very clean overall look and the lack of wear to interior, I'd say Peterson relied on her overseas caps...she did not wear this often. There is evidence a small label was removed from the lining at some point in the long ago. A look at the pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition, in all ways, a fine example. If you are a condition conscious collector of original items genuinely relating to WW2 service in the WAC, ANC and other corps of the Army Medical Department (or any aspect of active female participation in the armed forces of the United States in those times) or need a great real example of this classic hat for a spot on impression, or simply wish this single tangible link to a specific named veteran who helped save the world, this will have great meaning for you
