J001680 (IJA) OFFICER'S FIELD CAP.  

The standard, wool construction, khaki-colored field cap used by the Japanese army until the end of the war. Above its stiffened, short visor, made of the same material as the body, is sewn a pentagonal patch, in olive drab wool, upon which is embroidered a golden five-pointed star. Pressed paper chinstrap, has some cracks, but is complete and is attached at either end by small brass buttons, each with a five-lobed cherry blossom embossed to them. Three metal ventilation grommets are to each side of the cap, all moderately surface spotted. Three grommets are to either side of the vertical slash to the reverse of the cap; the six bound together by an adjustable tie string. The interior is lined in green silk. Sweatband shows the expected age and wear. Decent worn and used example.
