    Is this the same one from the Wilkins book?

    In any event, we need under the hood shots; close-ups of the insignia; close-ups of the piping joinders to start.

ID:	920895Mr. Mint is right. The images you have there do not allow a real assessment.

    I own the twin of the cap on the cover of Wilkin's book. There were two of these in one family, and the one on the cover was sold by Shea to a Chinese graduate student ca 2000 and he tried or did sell it recently. I ended up with the other many years ago.

    My cap is in the Shea Beaver book on SS headgear, however.

ID:	920903I would also note, that, despite what is in the Wilkins book, these caps exist with the yellow or cream colored interior as well as grey interior, and are perfectly authentic.
    damit, basta.

    Tell the person to be very careful of the sweatband, too.
