    Default A true crusher

    After falling foul some time back to a falsely advertised "crusher cap" I finally found a proper one - a Lewis Fly-weighter summer cap.
    Once you have held one, and felt just how crush-able a true one is, then the others are just "crushed".

    Maybe some cap gurus out there can tell me more about it but I just wanted to show off!

    Cheers, Dan

    I love the USAAf officer's cap. I do not have a tan summer cap, but only two
    winter weights, and these are not the 'crush' type. Dan, this is a
    great example of a high quality crusher cap.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thanks Steve,
    I got it VERY cheap ( US$90 ) because it was poorly described & photographed and I took the chance - and this time it paid off!
    No background sadly so it has to stand on it's own merit but these are up there with Bancrofts in my book.

    Cheers mate, Dan
