Default LW TROPICAL OVERSEAS CAP W. Tobbens

Hello
What are your thoughts on this LW OS Cap?
Looking around not much on this maker.
Very difficult to authenticate.
I took a black light and nothing glows at all.
The eagle is sewn thru the lining.
Thank you for your time and help
Tony

The name of this notorious maker should read Többens (the o with the dieresis).I’m not even sure the registered name on the stamp is correct.

Hello,
this is a repro cap IMO.I think there are more issues,not only the maker stamp.
Let's wait for some more opinions.Please,see photos of one of mine..
