    Best way for me to tell is if there is discoloration underneath on the cap...You may wish to test the thread with a BlackLight to see if it's period or postwar thread...Eagle looks good to me, and I've seen items stitched in this manner before, so it's not a disqualifier...It would be even better if we could see the whole cap...
    cheers, Glenn

    Here are a couple more pics. I had to haze out the website name, so try to overlook the haze.
    Also, is this an official officers m43 or an upgraded em/nco?
