    Wow- I wouldn't have guessed that it was a fake...fairly convincing overall and the aging is done rather well in my opinion...Thanks go to Stonemint for so generously sharing the fruits of his research...
    cheers, Glenn

    Is the underside of the peak pebbled, rather than crosshatched? If so, that's a definite clue it's bad.

    These are mainly prewar. Every original one I have owned or seen were unit marked on the reverse of the sweatband.

    I'm not liking this either. Looks forced.

    A number of examples here to compare. Mine is post 12. As Bob notes, you can see the unit mark inside
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
