    I don't like the color either and it wouldn't be for my collection.

    I have to agree with the general consensus about the colour.

    I had a police cap made of a similar colour and material...please see below as a comparison.

    Not in denial here of course, I'm just a little confused, do you gentlemen actually just dislike the color? Or by 'dislike', you mean you believe the cap isn't authentic?

    I dislike the colour from both an asthetic point of view and originality. We all know field grey can be very elastic when it comes to shade. But I just cannot see this one being passed for duty.

    Cheers, Ade.

    to me is a mid/late war issued cap, individual ordered caps were differ in color, this is just a cheap work IMHO. All signs as a artificial sweatband, unmarked diamond in free form, wool felt bottom edge under the piping, it's make all good feeling to me. At least fakes made today is near textbook examples, and they are not in cheap branch of service. Admin is one of the cheaper branches, and at least insignia cost approx a 1/3 of the price of the hat

    Well, I suppose I will pass on it then, if originality is a concern. However, I have to say that I for one really like the color.

    I'm a little more open-minded about it. The color, the sweatdiamond, the band, the eagle (if original to the hat) and the sweatband all suggest a mom n' pop maker to me.
    However, you would have difficulty with re-sale due to all these variables if you purchased it.....

    that cap is not "textbook" I dont like grey interior and color exterior, a very unusual cap, not fake not good for my collection...
