    Most likely mid 1950's.

    Herbert Johnson Caps will usually have written above the logo, 'by appointment of the king', 'late king George VI' or 'the Queen' it is a good way to date weather wartime or postwar. Yours i see has Queen so post 53.

    i would not say they were rare, about as rare as an officers service dress, i have purchased them from 30-70+ depends on condition, regiment and size is a big factor, if the cap is a wearable size the price is always a lot more.

    They often survive in the smaller or less commonly the larger sizes because they are less likely to continue in use as long as the average sizes which tend to get worn out. I rarely find any UK tunics or caps that fit me, most are too small, a few are too large, almost none are the correct size.
