A lot of Redskins fans remember the moment head coach George Allen led the Burgundy and Gold to an NFC Championship victory over the Dallas Cowboys on New Year’s Eve, 1972.

How many remember the postgame, on-field celebration, when, in the midst of a massive crowd, a fan plucked the burgundy Redskins cap atop Allen’s head?

Well, as fate would have, more than 42 years later, the hat has returned to the Allen family.

President Bruce Allen received a package earlier this week all the way from Belgium. Inside lay the hat, still in decent shape, and a letter from the same fan who stole it during the New Year’s game jubilation.

Watch the segment from “Redskins Nation” above for the incredible full story.
