    Needless to say, both of these 14th Hussars caps are missing the bottom row of white piping. Not for me, that's for certain.

    Bob, that is what I don't get. There are a lot of fakes here that lack that bottom ring of piping--I cannot figure out why (or how) they can miss something so basic....

    Every single reference source I have, and there are many , always show three rows of piping, never just two. Some hussar regiments, of course, in feldgrau, have an additional row of colored piping above the top row for the cap band.
    Are these caps converted from something else? I really have no idea.

    IMO, this one was originally made with only the top 2 rings of piping--the bottom one was crudely added after the fact:

    Lovely cap, for, of course Husaren Regt.nr.16, Kaiser Franz-Josef was the colonel in chief of this regiment. I agree cypher is bogus.
    Is this for sale anywhere? Thanks for showing it.
