    Had a few of these over the years but none ever with a Marine specific spec label so quite chuffed and its mint/unissued.

    Any difference to the Army issued cap?

    Thanks

    Very clean M 51 patrol cap..

    Have seen this type of label before. Matter of fact, I have an  M 51  with a similar label.

    I don't believe it is a USMC issue cap as Marines  have been using   8 point covers since WWII.  

    Your  cap is dated (19)73 ....as is mine.  Early M51s had no labels;  all info was  ink stamped directly into the cap .
    This practice continued as late as (19)73.

    Dated 1953.

    Sure somewhere amongst my field jackets,cannot remember now if an M51 or M65 but that has a Marine Corps Label as well.
