    Default Rabbit Fur Winter Cap...Thoughts???

    Hi guys! I came across this cap and have my doubts for obvious reasons (i.e. the sewn on eagle emblem for one). That being said, since I've never researched these, and cannot find anything on them in my research materials, thought I'd post it here for some feedback before I turn it down.

    Thanks!!

    There were quite a few different versions of these winter caps - often with an eagle/often without an eagle. Soldiers added eagles themselves.

    It is a good cap. I have 2 different types ,Infantry and Police, with sewn metal cap insignia direct from veterans.

    Hi SteveR. I guess this goes to show how important it is to do the research and get feedback from others before dismissing something. Since posting this I've found at least two similar caps with sewn eagles so I'm glad I posted it here

    What do you think is a fair price to pay for this? Again, I've never come across one of these and you have two similar caps.

    Wow, I would have thought these would be more valuable. They seem pretty rare.

    The one shown seems to be in real good shape. I would think $175 TO $200 for a value.
    They are not rare. Normally made from rabbit fur but can be found in more exotic furs donated for winter clothing by civilians. If the hide of the fur is stiff, split, moth eaten or dropping fur it is worth much less. A few hairs coming out is not bad though. A bunch is trouble.
