    Well, It looks like a real one. Insignia is correct, real, and nice looking. First time I've seen a bullion eagle on a hat like this. I have a bullion wreath, too.

    To be honest, I don't like the look of it based upon the following observations.

    1. The green band looks like it varies in thickness. Might be the photos of course.
    2. The sweatband doesn't look like it fits correctly to the interior of the cap.
    3. The lining looks too short for the cap and is stretched.
    4. The holes in the lining I think are a sign that it might have been re-sewn at some point and may not even be original to the cap.

    Go on cap guys, how did I do?

    Very good! gold star for you.

    I can say with some confidence that this is a frankenstein of sorts. The main body of the hat could be authentic (not 100% sure) but it's seems someone tried to turn it into a Alter Art style cap by adding the flexible pasteboard and leather peak. They didn't do very good job and now nothing fits together properly.

    My first impression of the eagle was not good. Even from the bad angle the pic was taken from.
