    Hi Tom, the cap itself looks fine, but the eagle has been replaced. Looks like a bit of a shadow to the top edge where the original once sat?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Is that type of fraying on the soutache normal wear? I know nothing about sidecaps, but it seems very odd.

    That's the first thing I wondered about.

    The soutach is a bit too far gone to comment on. No idea of how/why it could have ended up like this. No exactly a usual occurance.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I've been looking for an NCO version with no luck. But I have seen about 6 officer examples in the last 3 months. I think the cap is good and the cockade is good. I agree the Adler has been replaced and the quality of the replacement is suspect. I have never seen a Soutache fray so badly. Perhaps it was non-regulation twisted cord of some kind? It is possible if the cap was custom made. If it looks like it was professionally attached on the interior that would influence my opinion. NH
