Above the band, to its forward seam line, is sewn a yellow machine woven Army pattern star insignia. To the interior, its medium green colored liner, in a looser weave material, mirrors the six-piece construction to the exterior. Small piece of lining material missing, no chinstrap. Both issue tags present. Nice, salty, worn and used example most probably a battlefield pick-up.
