    That is certainly a beauty Bill. Congrats!

    That star cockarde is an absolute ORIGINAL example of the M22. Notice that it is not "think and clumsy", like the chipped-up, fake-aged knock offs that adorn the equally fake M27 caps that have flooded the Western collector's market in recent years...

    Thank you, gentlemen. It really was a lucky acquistion, and, as you say, tough to upgrade. I'll add some more pictures soon. . .

    That one is made of US type of material and early rough "kolenkor" sweatbamd, the bright wool piping is in Imperial quality. I had this visor in my own collection over a 10 years, but I've decided to collect only a 35-45 years items, due of that , sold/trade a lot of stuff
