This is an olive-colored military overseas cap.
The entire hat is composed of the same thick wool fabric, with seams along either end. The crown is oval shaped and connects the two halves that make up the sides of the cap. It has an elongated somewhat shallow dome and the bottom edge is folded up creating a fold around its circumference. At one end, this fold reaches the top of the hat. At the other end, the fold is not as tall and one can see the seam where the two halves are stitched together.
The inside of the hat has a tan colored band.
These are labelled as WWI Overseas Caps. The hat belonged to Nick J. Mallos (the father of the donor), who was a Private in the U. S. Army during World War I. Mallos was born in Langadia, Greece, December 6, 1888. He immigrated to America in 1912 arriving first in Virginia and eventually went to Louisville, KY where he was called to serve in the U.S. Army in May, 1918 when he was 33 years old. He was assigned as a cood in the 52nd Infantry serving in France. He was discharged on June 21, 1919.
