This cap was advertized as an unlabeled M-43 pile cap, and as it was a large size (7 3/8ish), in good condition, and reasonably priced I bought it. There are no labels or tags whatsoever.
Is this a US Army M-43 pile cap at all, or maybe a similar cap as used by some other country's army? The way the laces are attached to the flaps looks different than on other (labeled) M-43 pile caps I've seen, and the bill is a funny shape and not as broad as usual. Can anyone tell if this is a US Army M-43 pile cap at all, or if it is Canadian, Dutch or from some other NATO country?
