Father's Day Gift

Recommended Posts

Well, as I am sure you know, Navy service cap.  But from which country is the question.  The eight-pointed star at the top reminds me of the Star of Ishtar; so, I'm guessing a Muslim country.  I've eliminated Indonesia, Malaysia, and Turkey; at least as far a a quick Google search allowed.

I wonder if it might be a merchant shipping company insignia.  Somehow just doesn't look naval to me.

You know, now that I look at it again, it seems odd that the eight-pointed star is silverish in color and appears to be "pinned" onto the cap vice an integral part of the insignia.  Even the anchor looks metallic and more "pinned" onto the cap than an integral part of the insignia.  Only the wreath appears braided.  I guess all that is possible, but shouldn't the cap insignia be all one integral piece rather than appearing put together?

We may never find an answer on this one...

Maybe this shot of the inside may help. Sorry I didn't think of it sooner.

That eight-pointed star is the primary clue then...  And Hugh could be right, a merchant or shipping line insignia.

Thanks again. Any suggestions on how I can do further searching? (sites, etc??)

Sorry, Ed, way outside my lane and my usual Google tricks are coming up empty.
