Hi Guy's,
I'm looking to buy this cap and Steve has been kind enough to post it on the forum for comments. I would appreciate your views.

Looks good, private purchase floppy cap with football buttons, narrow chinstrap with diamond sliders, short peak, padded lining. Ticks all the boxes for such caps IMO. I did see it when it was still listed and I was tempted but I am too skint at this time otherwise I might have hit the buy it now button, also a used example with its original badge would be more in keeping with my interests these days.
