The previous collector stated it was a WWI soldier’s dress uniform hat. I have had the hat in my collection for approximately 12 years. The Henderson Ames Company was formed in 1893 to 1923 and was one of the country’s leading producers of uniforms. The company produced military uniforms during World War I and continued into the 1920s. I have sold the majority of my WWI collection, besides this hat and a sword and my focus will continue on my Civil War collection. This hat is an original antique and in very good + condition for its age. This is your chance to own a piece of WWI history.
