Cap is undamaged, and but exhibits some signs of wear. Exterior surfaces show minor staining and discolouration, but this example has not been badly sun bleached, as many were. Sweatband has many minor cracks but is complete, and still quite flexible. Peak is somewhat misshapen, and has a small stain on the underside.
