I love them when they have that rough look. I always preffer something that looks like its been there done that over a minty cap. This just looks a lot more interesting than one in new condition.
I should not misuse my authority here, such as it is, but this item is a below average fake, rendered in absurd condition by the hand of a petty criminal.
It is not authentic, but a contemporary reproduction as found on dozens of websites.
Personally I always love how they "dust" the abomination just enough to ghost the cap badges.
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

Our images of authentic regalia of this specific type emerge first in the google image heap, so why do others fall into such a smelly and messy trap?
The dynamics of the thing baffle me.
Sold to the man who needs to do some research before He buys lol
