Gents ,
As usually the most common type is not represented, so let me post mine, someone has to do it. :D

Nice Tschako Ed, and a real cockade.

that's a nice one
with or without markings the still stand as a beauty
did you also check the inside of the tonges
i've seen once one that had a cloth name tag sewn on the inside of the tonges
that would be a big surprise \:D/
