    Hi

    It has a chance BUT we need better pictures please, need to show the lining more clearly and what the logo under the celluloid actually is.
    Also pics of the lining under the sweatband please.

    The insignia is re-applied by the look of things and I reckon the piping looks lemon yellow on my monitor but need to check if the cap is actually a cavalry.

    Also how much is it.......? don't tell me but if it's under priced be wary as this may flag up other "reasons" for sale.

    Hope this helps.........don't rush in and buy it yet.


    cheers

    Tony

    I think that's a stinker, actually, with all due respect to Mr. Tony.

    Thanks Tony, it really seems to be a signals crusher hat.

    Frederich, why do you think it stinks? Is it a fake? been tampered with?

    Thanks

    I have seen several fakes with the Prussian eagle mark on the cello. Also, the peak does not look of the epoch, either, as I have a number of caps with leather peaks.
    Thirdly, the insignia does not look correct, either. That is, the patina on the alu wire.
    damit, basta.

    Tony,

    How much would be the right price for a Signals Crusher like this one?

    Thanks

    Look on the Shea and also the Whammond site for examples of authentic field caps of this kind.
