This cap was used by a Chicago Police sergeant during the 1970's in Chicago. The gold shield has a schooner, Indian, sheath of wheat, baby in a shell, and is topped off with an eagle. The cap top is navy blue leather for colder weather. The gold chin cord is held on with two gold buttons which say Chicago Police on them. The cap band is gold and navy blue checked as it should be for higher ranking officers. The ordinary patrolman's cap band is navy blue and white checked. This was copied from the British Police.

    Would this have been for a dress uniform, or would this have been something for everyday use?
