Let's revive this topic with the official DI for the 6th Tank Battalion, the only image I could find, this one, it was adopted in May 1951. so the one on the cap I would think is one of those unauthorized types seen it this period, it may be Japanese or even Korean made, as this unit was fighting in Korea in 1950-51. The cap's piping would be correct as this Yellow piping would be the branch color of the new Armor branch, formed sometime in 1950 with the WWII period Armored Forces color of Green and White no longer used.
Here's a similar one for the 63rd Infantry, 6th Infantry Division, which is probably Japanese or Korean made too, considering that the 6th Inf Div was on Occupation Duty in Korea following VJ Day for awhile. The official DI for the 63rd Inf was adopted in June 1951, in both cases the official DI is designed using features the early locally adopted unit DI as you see.
Above item being sold here if anyone's interested .
