    But to have a wealth of knowledge you have to first be around and consult with people who are more knowledgeable than yourself. The learning can not be done solely in books.

    Ok well let's draw a line under this one and just remember how best to go about asking for help.

    Ben, I agree, it is a thankless task (with very rare exceptions). I do it because I do not want new/young collectors to make the same mistakes I did when I was their age. The only advice I ever got back then was "read the books" (which was worthless back then, as there was only 2 books on headgear).

    Obviously, if we let people get burned (which is much more expensive to have happen today, even when adjusted for inflation), this hobby will be populated by only a few people in short time.

    I did receive some additional pictures which have alleviated my initial concerns somewhat. Looks like the front lining has been re-sewn, but the side pleats appear ok.

    Like any SS visor, it would need a hands-on.

    Stonemint, are those inliner photos from the original posted visor cap?
    Mint never worn liner?

    This morning I got an SS Off visor offer, looked and looked glad I refused to buy it.
    But anyhow this one here looks better if all is OK.

    Robt--yes, the pics I posted are from the hat that led off this thread. At the very least, the front of the lining has been re-sewn. It needs a hands-on....

    The band has not been re-sewn. What you see is a crease in the leather.

    Klaus, they are talking about the lining, not the sweat band.
