    There you go Tom as requested.....

    This one is made from high quality tricot and has a gold sink interior. The piping is carmine and it has a leather peak. The peak is covered on the outside with a protective lacquer which accounts for the scratches and marks on it.

    The chin strap is secured by sown on buttons and is the sliding type rather than the buckle.

    Other interesting point is the velvet cap band is sown together at the sides not at the rear of the cap as is usually found.

    I have to say i was very excited to get hold of this rare cap.......but maybe that's just me ?


    cheers
