    Ok guys, I'm usually pretty good at spotting fakes, I have to be. There is something about this cap, that i can't put my finger on. I know the insignia has been re-stitched, which in itself is not a problem, There are no markings on it, and it is the correct wool material.......but i have a small niggle over it. and i can't for the life of me decide what, if anything is wrong. 2 people have given it the thumbs up, but i need to be sure (yes I know, an honest dealer)



    Came in a trade, and i don't want to catch anyone out , so before i list it, give it your best shot............... Whatdya think????

    Hi JMB


    Why bother to buy or trade this one if you know that the insignia is restitched...

    Hi Nick, it ends up being a cheap cap I hope!

    Hi John, I cannot see any problem with it, but I am not a KM uniform collector.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I like it too, looks like an original one. To bad the insignia has been re sewn as it will effect the value but you already know that, and still nice IMO

    I still never seen a perfectly done hats ( fakes), which can send to you some of the character. This one feels authentic to me...
