Worker's Cap

From the latest offerings of eBay comes this little... "Gem."  (I'm sorry, I had to.)  It's a worker's cap from the 1940s/1950s  I am impressed that it carries what was, for its time, the latest advertising pitch the company was using for its most popular product.  Though a bit expensive for my taste at a "buy it now" price of $70 or best offer, you could soon be in possession of this genuine Menasha artifact.  Imagine, some 60-70 years ago, coming into work at the brewery, a stack of these caps at the ready for workers to don, and presumably, pitch away after a day or two's use.  And now it's down to this one collectible cap, just waiting for your intervention.  Don't delay.  Act now.
