    Hi Joe. Check the back of the badge for a makers mark.
    Sometimes they are not marked at all, but quality
    US insignia usually is - It's very 'new' looking.

    The stiffener in the rim makes it look different - more
    like the USMC stlye of cap.........
    this is not a usmc cap knox made caps in ww2 crushers and visor caps as the one pictured the knox company started in 1838 and their factory which w as in NYC was closed in the late 1940's so this being a knox cap makes it good knox caps where very popular and even omar bradleys visor was made by knox !! this crusher in my opinion is 100 percent original !!

    I am far from experienced with all of this... But the cap badge appears unmarked, BUT appears to have been on the cap for a while:

    If it was a Marine Corps Officer Barracks cover(Hat) it would have a quatrefoil on the top of it.

    I wasn't suggesting that the above hat that Joe posted was or
    is a Marine Corps visor, just that the Eagle looked 'new'.
    - It's my other buddy that has a strange one !

    Perhaps the bright lighting makes the eagle appear
    too shiny, similar to later types.........
    Regards,
