This site has a lot of vintage caps from WWII, Some very nice detailed shots.

The link is to the german ones, but there are others as well.

Cant you spraypaint Nylon with really high quality paint? Like testors or something? I thought that if the ratio of the ammount of pigment to the ammount of glue was high enough that it woudl still work and be flexible.

The hat I'm talking about dying says it's made of a cotton twill.... is cotton twill nylon? If so, I didn't know that [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />

@toy, yeah, crazy prices for that stuff! I said the same thing, but it is in mint condition. I thought
It was a reproduction at 1st. It's weird to think it was sitting in someones attic for years.

It's pretty much a museum piece - I can't imagine they would be easy to come by (i.e i don't think people were eager to hang on to them as precious momentos )
