    Roberto,

    It looks good to me too but saying that, I have no experience with caps and am going by its visual appearance, guessing it's unissued with storage rust. Jerry would know but I haven't seen any of his posts for a while so hope he's ok. Rene too I'd have thought so hopefully he'll see it and comment.

    Yep all good and a not a commonly/popular worn cap-- good score as these are not too easy to find these days (well in my book)
    These were nick named C*nt caps down here due to similarity to a certain part of the female anatomy hehe
    I don't think by memory I've post my caps here but here's a vague reference for Aust uniforms etc.. Australian Collection
    Regards

    Thanks for information Renč and congratulations for your wonderful collection.
    Then I did not know the "anatomical" comparison......hahaa!...Soldier's fantasy.

    Very fine example from the period just before they introduced State letter & maker's number code. Does anyone know what the F/I\S broad arrow mark is for?

    It's an inspectors stamp

    Thanks Rene, British inspectors stamps were much thinner than this so that's why I asked about it.
