    Hi Rene,
    This is mine...
    I understand the five rows of reinforcing stitching to the edge indicates very early production (pre-Great War), though I have yet to find confirmation of this.
    There are two paper labels glued in, both denoting size 7 1/8, though no maker’s marking is visible.
    The Infantry blue cords are now, clearly, quite faded and there are no fittings for a chinstrap (no break is provided in the lining band stitching, which would allow insertion of a strap, in the style of the Commonwealth Slouch Hat either).
    Not as squeaky as yours, but I like it. These hats do have such evocative character about them...
    Great find mate and all the best,
    Bob

    I owned a WWI Marine Corps hat that since has been traded for some Imperial German items . I probably won't find one in better condition. They are definitely a neat collectible. Posted to use as a reference not to distract from Rene's great find.
