Good looking cap.
My interest in japanese military is growing every day.
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

Looks like a late war officer's field cap. Star insignia looks mounted too high. Collar tab of enlisted might of been added post war. Can you check to see how star was attached? Should be machine sewn under liner. There should be no visible stitches
Jareth, the star is machine sewn on. No stitches visible inside of the hat, covered by the lining. Thanks, Rob.
Excellent news! That cap is an officer's variation so the low rank tab has me confused
Cool, Jareth, the rank tab was on it when I found it. No idea when it was added, I just left it as found. Thanks, Rob.
