What was the hat from.

The hat is a size 7 1/4 distribited by the Mclilley & Companyt out of Columbus, Ohio. Look old and maybe a military. The hole in the front is from somone ripping off a cross which was a patch. Some one said it was a salvation army chaplin hat, possibily very old. Others say it a female mililiary hat from back when. The buttons say "lk hogseosno vinces" with a crown and cross insigna.

    Crown and cross sounds like the Knights Templar fraternal order to me.

    Agree this is fraternal.

    It is similiar to military style hats of the era, but the buttons and double corded hat cord indicate it was made as a fraternal piece.
