    Here's a comparison to the one I"m considering and one given the absolute thumbs up. I am concerned about the "9". The way the nine finishes up in it's upward curl looks different. I think like John H above I am very paranoid for good reason on these. I believe perhaps the stamp got better...

      To Harry's which I can immediately ID as the same as the first original I compared to, again, the "9" looks different. Unless I get some very compelling evidence to the contrary I am passing on this one... Sadly. I really wanted one.

        Last comparison to Harry's. Now it seems OK to me... Material weave seems the same also. Maybe just a difference in the way the stamp hit the material and how much ink hit the nine. Date looks better to me now.

                      Hi,you can see blue backed continental cockades factory applied on LW tropical overseas caps from time to time ( a lack of the trop cockades on the factory stock maybe...) so not a problem for me if period applied.
                      Best,

                          Remember that Berolina applied blue backed EM cockades to black HG caps as well. To me this was an issue of simplicity and not a lack of "proper" insignia.

                                hello John ,
                                is Berolina the only known maker which produced LW tropical side cap with red lining ?
