    Default USAAF B-2 Cap, is it a modern copy?

    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone tell me if this is a genuine wartime cap or a modern copy? I assume its modern because of its good condition, (and I know these are still in production) but I would like to be certain.

    Thankyou, Douglas

    Pretty sure this is a modern copy ( within the last 15 to 20 years or so ).
    'Eastman' produced many WWII style flight jackets as well as leather
    gloves. These are high quality items and quite pricey.

    They are still in business. Nice cap though, even if it's a repro.........

    The fact that it is also not Air Force stamped makes me think that it is a repo a good one though

    Gary Eastman makes top notch replica items. I have an A2 made by him, bought it 20 years ago. (For sale actually)

    Cheers, Ade.
