I think that this is about one of the worst fakes I've yet to see....it doesn't even look good enough for a theater prop in a grade school play. Ridiculous. Do tell....just what is the Price on this treasure offered?
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
The good thing about how Adrian and Dimas and others unnamed who have constructed our site is the ease with which I can show real objects from my armory of pictures. Whether these images do a bloody bit of good is entirely a separate issue. An acquaintance today showed me his collection of reproduction caps, some twenty in number, which drove home to me that the chance to examine the real thing in the wool, or in the flesh or in the cupal is a pretty rare experience and an especially costly one. I do not get around much, but the the proud images of this young man's collection, which would cost not very much money compared to some things known to us, was a very tangible proof to me of the inequalities in this world and how difficult it is for some to get a toe hold in all of this.
I can recall when I was fairly without a clue in the middle of the 20th century, and these electric pictures are likely as confusing as revealing.
I am sure the issue would make a good project for someone's research. But not mine.
Happy hats and may your Kleiderkammer be filled with your dreams.
Thanks everyone! I know FB has an immense and vast array of visors !!!!! I also know that there was a lot of private purchase and custom made hats. I had initially thought junk, but then i decided to see if this was perhaps a private purchase or custom made item..... i did have a slight hope, because it looks to be period....anyway, thanks for the all the input.... i better stick to what i know right now, metal TK's and cloth insignia.... lol !
