    The reasoning behind removable white-tops is that white crowns will get dirty much easier than crowns made of darker cloth and as such they will be needing regular cleaning to always look their best. To avoid ruining the rest of the cap in the wash, the crowns were made removable and could thus be washed separately.

    How true. Nice to see my Norwegian friend posting here. I have still not read Zarathustra, which is bad of me.

    I pop in from time to time, but I am much more busy now with the mundane, everyday world, alas. Nietzsche remains elusive in the physical sense for me too I am afraid, although the books are situated not many yards from where I am. I am glad to see that you keep rolling the stone up the hill for the benefit of those that will listen.

    The rock is landing on my head much harder nowadays than in former times. I am also suffocated in my everyday life, but I have fine students, eager to learn, and they give me much hope and pleasure. My best to you and please post more often.

    The tropical tan top was also removable as was the white top. In my first collection, I obtained from a veteran a white top Kreigsmarine petty officer cap with white top and also the removable tan top that went with the same cap.

    Textbook, as i understand the meaning, is when an item has all the right and necessary things that one would expect to see. The out of the woodwork i'm not sure. Maybe "as it was found"?

    Textbook means it completely matches all known and expected materials and construction techniques.

    Out of the woodwork, is a pretty poor expression IMO, that means it has just been found without previously being in a collection or been in a dealers hands. This means attic finds, local adds, boot /yard sale etc....

    Whatever its just an opinion.
