The underside of the brim is green. There is a brown, leather headband running almost around the entire bottom interior of the hat. The front two panels of the interior of the hat are lined with a stiff white canvas. There is a torn, partial tag attached to the back edge of the leather band on the proper right side that reads [D[---?] / [---?] / [---?] / In[---?] / SHO[---?] / [---? ]].
