I'm expecting the worst here, but I've got a return policy available so no real risk.  I like how it's made of two different fabrics (underside of brim), and the patch is of an obscure repair team.  All opinions welcome, I'm not too well versed on these types of boonies.  Thanks for looking

I forgot to add that SMAMA stands for Sacramento Air Material Area, and this is coming out of a city 20 minutes away from Sacramento.

I’m a novice at VN headgear as well, but it sure looks good to me.

Cap and arcs are legit, Ive never seen this patch before. But I think its good. These parachute silk ones are tough to find

In hand it's no question real.  Here's some closeups of the patch:

I spent some time trying to put the snap rivet back in place, and I think I succeeded.  There wasn't a ton of material left so it's very fragile, but it now displays properly:
