Here's a recent purchase which I believe to be a French TAP 47/56 hood.Are there different versions of these hoods,if so I would be interested to learn the different models.
Thanks for looking Steve, I would be very grateful to see other examples for comparison.CollectinSteve wrote:I'm curious too. I also wonder if they were made in different sizes.
I bought a hood many, many years ago and it looks original. But the holes didn't line up for my TAP 47/56 jacket, which made me wonder about it. Definitely not Portuguese. Now that I have the other TAP models I suppose I should dig it out and see if it fits any of them, though I would think the button pattern would be the same.
