    Are you sure that is a USAF trials piece?
    The pattern screams Japanese made, as does the grommets and construction of the hat. Plus the seller is a fairly advanced tiger stripe collector.

    The blue ABU prototypes did have an 8-point cover issued during wear testing...but I don't think this is one, it seems a little too gray.

    Agree with Bob. Vietnam era cap, just with faded out black stripes.
