    WWII Visor Cap?

    Hey guys,
    Just picked this one up. I had in the past on another forum tried to generate a discussion on how to determine whether a visor is WWII or post war and never got anywhere with it.
    Hoping we can put our heads together and come up with some general guidelines.
    I have heard that a green underside to a visor is WWII, but I also have WWII visors with a cloth underside.
    I have also heard there is a way to tell based on the thickness and colour of the chinstrap.
    And lately I have heard that if it has a plastic sweatshield it is post war.
    Anyone else heard these or have your own ways of determining the vintage of a visor cap.
