Re: LW Tropical Overseas Cap

This one is a good one. There are some of these that some LW collectors don't like dated '42 but not convinced of that either. Nice Cap !

Re: LW Tropical Overseas Cap

Hi guys, nice cap Roy.

Yes Tim is right about the 1942 dated Berolina. There is a big debate about them. I read the arguments of both sides and i must say that both of them are valid. I still can't decide where to lean.

Re: LW Tropical Overseas Cap

I got mine in a trade but sent it back just to be covered.

Re: LW Tropical Overseas Cap

Hi Chris

Yes it is an interesting debate among the LW tropical guys on these '42 dated version.
Depending on how many $ ? i might have kept it, to show which way i lean...

cheers

Re: LW Tropical Overseas Cap

Hi Tim mate.
That was the problem. I got it for 500 euros so i wasn't willing to take the risk for this amount. For 200 ok, i could live with it.

Re: LW Tropical Overseas Cap

Very nice cap, Roy. I prefer them a little used (if not a lot used!)

Hi Chris

Yes agree 500 Euros would be too much for a cap that still has an ongoing debate, however i expect that the '42 Berolina's are good too, just paranoia among LW guys...

cheers mate !
