So, hang tight for a few more days, as there may be a delay until 3/27 to get your order shipped if the ordered artifact is with me on the road!!
Meanwhile, Kanae will be LISTING NEW ARTIFACTS DAILY,
And shipping what she can, through the foreseeable future!
Thank you for visiting. We hope you will find some vintage artifacts here to add to your collection!!

This is a beautiful circa 1960s captain's hat from Toa Domestic Airlines (TDA), a Japanese company that resulted from a merger in 1971 and then changed its name to Japan Air System in 1988. The hat has a bullion embroidery badge and bullion leaves on the wool visor area. The hat was originally owned by pilot D.R. Michaelis, and he reinforced the inner liner with some air mail envelopes. We also have an insignia/badge lot that was owned by the same Captain for sale separately: please see link at the bottom of this page for information.
Circa early 1970s.
No size tag: approximate size 7 1/2.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Wool embroidered in bullion thread, leather, embroidery tape, clear plastic.
MICHAELIS, D.R. M TDA- TOKYO INT'L AIRPORT.

7- (Very Fine-): The hat has some areas of light staining but is in otherwise fine condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
