    Looking forward to opinions on this example....The rounded shape reminds me more of a Coffee-Can Kepi than a LW-M43..I'm not familiar with the leather-reinforced bill -perhaps others are-, and I also notice that the bill appears unusually thick (Or is it just the photos)...When I was 13 years old I bought one of these from Roger S.Steffens -in Kentucky- for $40, lol...a lot of money for a kid back then...
    Like most Late-War items, examples are encountered with irregularities, so I'm reluctant to cast judgement...Just pointing out aspects that appear unusual to my eyes...

    I will need to take better photos, the cap dose not look as rounded on the top in person, and the bill is not any thicker than normal. I will post much better photos later tonight.
    Thanks

    I am not fond of the 2 color lining or the leather sweat band in a enlisted mans cap.
    I really do not know what it is.

    I have to say that I'm not agreeing with it. The leather sweatbands were to be found in Officer's caps, as far as I have ever known. This one raises a couple of antenna...

    Just looking at the makers name imprinted on the leather sweatband ... is it just me or does it say Juan (something i can't make out), Madrid?
