Here's "1950's" (I say at least late 1940's - with satin lining) Harley Cap in a color combo I've never seen. Based off the photographs, I thought it was grey with a silver brim - which made sense because I've owned one before, but a response to a question on the auction revealed that the crown is tan.  I've never seen a tan cap with what looks to be a silver brim.  My 1930's tan Harley Cap has a black brim (with tan duck cotton lining).  The cap also came with the aftermarket braided leather chin strap (usually with a bakelight strap lock).  Nothing beats an original motorcycle cap!!

This was a great cap in a great size for a very nice going price ($264) sold by Mike Wolfe of American Pickers.
