    William/Michael,

    Thanks! I really like this white visor. Really unique. This gentleman was a Captain/Centurion I think so if it was available I should be able to narrow it down to a limited number of people for that regiment.

    I've been fortunate with these Italian Hat/Helmets of late. There seems to have been a collector in my area that has passed and all he collected was Italian since the 1950. His family has been selling it off. As such I have been able to pick up a number of really nice items over the past few months....still have my eye on a few other caps...This is what I've picked up (have been shown in a few other threads in March/April individually). Have another visor and stenciled helmet I can post as well.

    Enjoy

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
