    I was watching this on ebay...if it was a genuine one i think the price would have been around the 500 or more mark.

    I am in no way an expert on these things but the stamp looks fake to me, the style of font..lack of broad arrow...and ww2 berets had a large crown which this one hasnt.

    I reckon its a postwar beret with repro markings.Sorry.

    Yes this is the beret i am going to send it back as not correctly described as he said it was genuine 1944 dated so i took the chance.As soon as i opened the envelope and touched it i had this gut feeling that it was wrong it screams at me !!!!!!

    I have a post war compton and webb maroon beret and it has very much the same construction. I dont know if they changed much over the years?

    I am sure Ade will know about something like this.

    The markings look to be in perfect condition which do not match the rest of it, so sending it back does seem the right course of action.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Modern beret with fake date stamp. Refund needed!

    Totally wrong interior construction.

    Cheers, Ade.
