    Default French military hat ID (french foreign legion)?

    Hi everyone, i just got back from the outback. I came across a antique shop in the middle of know where. Spotted this hat. The description said " french military hat , legion? "
    The guy was asking $130 aussie dollars.
    I had a gut feeling it maybe worth alot more.
    Anyone know more about it, what year or if it is French foriegn legion?

    Appears to be a sergeant's kepi, given the metallic chinstrap ( can't tell if gold or silver),likely for infantry arm of service.
    Not FFL, as they wear a voided grenade badge, with side buttons reading " Legion Etrangere" surrounding a grenade.
    Any device or motto on the side buttons?

    Almost forgot; asking price is far, far too high.
