    Canadian Para Beret

    Post by ypres on Thu Mar 17, 2016 1:18 pm

    Saw this on Ebay ..... looks to be 1960's or 1970's to me ?? I have never seen A WWII Beret with that type of logo or with the postwar Canadian Government issue stamp? Any thoughts?

    It is a post-WWII beret posing as wartime.

    Looks like the final buyer will be contributing to his "Militaria University" tuition. The second highest bidder will feel disappointed he didn't win the auction but he'll be the actual winner here. It may realize over $500 with two days to go .....

    Postwar beret with a fake badge. Not going to be a good outcome here...
