Army Officer side cap is stamped with the logo of "UCI", which is/was a major costume supplier for the film industry. They sold off a large amount of their stock a few decades ago and this cap is apparently one of their pieces. Like other older costume companies, their military stock was a mix of original, reworked, as well as modern copies. This cap is made from what appears to be original wool but as the side flaps are not connected along the bottom, it is an older rework. The cockade area shows that there was a larger insignia sewn at one time. The hand embroidered bullion eagle looks potentially good, but the cap is being listed as a reproduction. Perhaps it can be seen in a scene from an old war film!
