This came in a big collection I picked up a while ago.

 

From a little quick research online, I read on Bando's website that the variant was a less common late 1944 style with the glider oriented to the right for officer use.

 

This one also has a clean L-9639 laundry mark inside.

 

What do you guys think?

The insignia is actually that of a Major. It also looks like an enlisted infantry piped cap to me. Officer caps had a metallic braid piping.
