A tally in the form of a thin black ribbon with golden letters “TSS Pulaski” worn on sailors’ caps. Letters embroidered with golden thread, the tally itself in very good condition, a visible trace of the place where it was fastened on the cap. It has minor dirt, the material slightly differs in shade on the top and the back, but it does not interfere with the great presentation in the collection, what’s more – it adds character.

A very rare collector’s item.
