Sorry waban. I thought u may of had a response by now. Is the hat placed in the correct section of the forum? If not I'm happy to bump it up as I'd like to see what the verdict is on this very attractive piece. Welcome to the forum there's someone here who will be sure to give you the answer your looking for. Best regards.
This type of hat as rare as it is requires many pictures and very good inspection as they are faked very well. I am sure someone with much more knowledge on these hats will tune in soon. One this that seems off is the overall wear, there is heavy staining in the top of the hat but no where else.
Thank you for your answers guys! Unfortunately I don't have any other pictures...
I will wait for other responses!
Thank you ! But for me it looks similar...
What do I have to think?
You might think it similar, but fundamentally, your enclosure is likely one of thousand of fakes.
Don't be sorry, I don't buy it yet!
But how can you see it's a fake one? I don't see any difference between your pictures and mines?
Thank you very much!
