I recently picked this cap up off e bay. The only photo showed the front of the cap.
Which was a shame because I should have asked to see a picture of the back.
A photo of the top was also cleverly taken to show it from its best angle. In fact the other side looked like this.
It also had a chin strap which was a late war three piece version....oh sorry I mean it had broken into three pieces. Still the rusty buttons were still in place holding on two bits of the chin strap so it wasn't all bad news.
That said i'm very happy with it... I'm hoping some one can confirm if it is a M1917 universal field cap. The cap band is a darkish green in sunlight as is the piping. In pictures it looks more brown/green.
Any opinions/comments always welcome.
