    Hello Bill and long time no see man!

    Please, take more detailed shots at all angles of your cap's body, the inside (especially the stamp), the star cockarde, and the visor & post them here when you have an opportunity.

    I don't like this cap, blue cloth is a little bit strange, also the cap looks too fresh for 20's. Most of the 20's must be made from Imperial or imported materials, like for example your borderguards cap

    Sorry it took so long; had to figure out how to use the new digital camera my son gave to my wife.

    Here they are in no particular order. Again, your comments and observations are most welcome. . .

    Regretfully Bill I have some doubts about this one...

    1- The entire cap seems to have been immersed in some type of dirty liquid and then dried. Can you feel any kind of fine grit if you give it a few pats or search with a fingernail in the nooks and crannies?

    2- That star cockarde; Too thick and clumsy to be an authentic M22, and it too seems to have been artificially aged. See my post about your OGPU BG cap.

    3- The visor; It seems that the edges have been deliberately scuffed to remove the blackening. Also, the surface seems to have been scuffed and/or artificially oxidized to imitate age.

    4- The "aged" sweatband is the typical brown coloured material commonly found on fake caps.

    5- The lining seems to be like new.

    6- The stamp; I really can not see, but going by the previous five attributes that I have observed - QUESTIONABLE to say the least.

    NOTE: The above are only my OPINIONS.

    Yes, it was gritty, as you say, and quite dusty when I gave it a pat. Not to worry, Richie, I can simply return it. I appreciate your experienced observations as well as Dimas'; thank you both. . .

    Richie, here is my points:
    2 Original star , great for 30's caps, but in condition not for this early cap.
    3 Visor is original, but they was found in a big quantity in unpainted condition in the ex-8 MAPTA factory's attic

    4 The sweatband prodused with that kind of relief found in original caps dated from 1928 year

    Probably a rework of a good and moth eaten cap
