Often missing or irreparably damaged, the encircling ribbon and bow on an issue campaign hat is an obvious and essential component. The silk ribbon used in the manufacture of these iconic headpieces has long been unavailable, replaced in the trade by nylon and rayon. Now, however, we can offer scarce original NOS military silk ribbon, in a 1 1/16 inch (2.8 cm.) width to revive those damaged campaign covers. Color is a dark medium brown—typically called “Army drab” in government specs, and “coffee brown” by collectors. Beautiful stuff, this ribbon boasts all the subtle gloss and marvelous flexibility it did when manufactured more than a century ago. One yard’s (36 inches or 90 cm.) length is sufficient for a single hat’s ribbon and bow. You won’t find it anywhere else, and investment in a new ribbon will add immeasurably to your hat’s appearance and value.
