Default 1 Can Para Officers Cap & Collars

Here's a rare textbook set that came out of the woodwork in Calgary about 12 years ago. This version was made by Scully / Montreal. I just acquired these from a good collecting friend this weekend who was ready to part with them. Thanks for looking!
Doug

Thank you gents. I'm honored to have been offered these. When time permits I'll photograph and post up the badge on my 1st Can Para beret and one from a 1st Can Para grouping I bought a couple years ago.
Cheers!
Doug
