    I imagine this could be a rather meticulous repair when done correct/accurately like this.

    Why yes, indeed, and I did not do it myself. I have the help of an old, old friend, who is a very gifted artisan.

    I had to find a suitable sweat band, which is not a very easy chore, either.

    Yes, this is why I posted this here.

    The cap is a classic of its type, in fact, but it is other than "untouched."

    So what...?

    Were I to sell it, I would, of course, tell the purchaser that I restored it.

    Very nice work, the m1/24 skull is also very well matching the eagle.
