    I am not an authority by ANY means but an initial observation is that it is quite grubby on the outside but clean on the inside and the same with the visor - I don't understand how that could be? If there is that much of a sweat deposit I would be expecting to see deterioration of the fur and a dirtier underside.

    Thanks Dan,
    My initial opinion was that the visor looked quite new

    Yes there are originals with that dark brown bill I will look for a picture I am posting one with the standard white bill. I would not dismiss this hat yet. The winter hats came in a lot of varities lots of makers. Most are unmarked. I can't remember I think it was either over on Wallahalla or WAF one just like this posted it was Ok. I have heard there are repos of this hat but I have never seen one I know they have just been repo the Army winter fur hats lately. timothy

    Yes SA Dolch that post and hat was by ninelives that is correct and yours is a example of the many variants of these hats. I have seen all kinds of variants in my time of collecting you have a fine one though. Ninelives has a good period sheepskin cap. Same old thing anytime you show a variant. Thanks for the post I am going to post mine I had the darker brown bill once like yours and ninelives. timothy

    Here is my more common white billed cap I had one like yours It is not as common as this one. Basically same cap. Only marks inside are a red tag with size 61. timothy
