Hi all,

 

Is this beret authentic to the period ? It looks unworn and the patch is minty.

 

Finally, what's it worth today ?

 

All comments,opinions,etc.. are welcome and appreciated.

 

It's been a while that I have been looking for a good one. Not easy to find, and perhaps most particularly when you live in France...

 

Thanks in advance !

 

Christophe

Looks good to me... does the unit crest have clutch back fasteners on the inside or are the prongs bent inward to attach to the beret?

If they are clutchback, can you remove the crest and see what the hallmark is?

I am sorry, but I don't have any other pictures. Just got it on the website on a famous US dealer (baystatemilitaria).
