    Geoff there are lots of minor manufacturing variations. Vents sewn reinforced, with grommets, without vents, stripes into rear adjustment holes & stripes ending before, sewn chinstraps, leather chinstraps, cloth chinstraps held by buttons and at least three types of insignias. Note two types of insignia shown on this post. Some have wreaths that end & other with additional details where wreath ends. Scarcest in my opinion is insignia that's not oval but seven sided

    Excellent caps gents!

    Geoff, like Jareth, I too wondered who got this one, was too slow off the mark also!

    I'll see if I can find a pic or two of mine to add.

    The stripes are fitted right into the rear adjustment area.
