Unissued Cap Tally registered to the German survey ship Meteor, totally authentic. Full length and never cut so as to fit a cap. A little history of the ship below:

German survey vessel, noted for her survey work in the Atlantic Ocean between 1925 and 1927. With the outbreak of the Second World War the ship was removed from service on 8 September 1939. Reactivated in 1940 Meteor was used as a tender in the Baltic Sea as well along the Norwegian Coast. With the end of the war, the ship was laid off in Kiel and in 1945 handed over to the Soviet Union. Renamed the Soviet survey vessel Ekvator. Her final fate is unclear, she was either scrapped in 1968 or survived some more years as a barracks ship.

A nice piece of history with minor thread damage to the rear machining.
