    Wow Anders,

    What a great visor and story.
    You took the risk of getting burned and you got lucky.
    Imho every collector deserves a bit of luck every now and then.
    But at least once in his collecting time
    Thanks,

    I'm currently waiting for a matching eagle to arrive. I have also contacted the seller to see if he is able to get in contact with the vet who brought it to the U.S. after the war, to get the story that belongs to the hat. (The seller claims to know the vet.)

    It always suprises me on caps like this one, and there is also a new item for sale at the collectors guild where the weave on the cap either side of the front join is not a mirror image. i.e. one vertical and one a 45 deg. you would have thought that they would have made the effort to mirror it?? Supose it only matters when you look closely at it.

    Nice cap anyway - looking better by the day with the insignia.

    cheers

    Here is the final result. A matching M1/167 eagle has been attached to the cap.

    I took this photo with a bad camera, I hope to be able to post some more tomorrow, in day light, with a better camera.

    I hope you like it. I do.
