Roman numerals on EREL visor caps

    Default Roman numerals on EREL visor caps

    I heard that certain EREL visor caps have Roman numerals (V, VI, VII, VIII etc.) on the cap lining that corresponds to the actual size of the cap. Since I only have one EREL visor cap (an "Extra") which does not have the Roman numeral marking, I wanted to hear people's thoughts on how prevalent the Roman numeral size marking is on EREL visors (only certain models like "Privat" have it?) and whether the marking absolutely must match the size of the cap. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!

    If it has the size numeral on the lining then yes, it should correspond with the actual size of the hat.
    Not all of them had this size mark, at least not all the erel sonderklasse caps I've handled. They all had the quadrant marks though.

    Nothing to worry about. Have a look for those quadrant marks though.

    Usualy red pencil or pen marks at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions on the top lining panel. They were put there to help the maker to align the top panel correctly. You have to look right near the seam to see them.

    Damn, Ben, thats the best illustration of quad marks I have ever seen--I think you missed your calling as a graphic artist!
