    I found this beret about twenty years ago in Oregon at a garage sale.The lady selling it knew nothing about it.I put it away and forgot about it.I got it out a couple of weeks ago and figured that I`d try to learn a little about it.The beret is three piece contruction, medium wieght wool.There is a satin crown with a plastic diamond sewn inside.There is a small round tag inside the plastic diamond,it is white with red print.I cant read what it says because it is faded and may not be in English.There is a partial lining that is light tan and has a very faint red mark/stamp,that is circular,on it.Couldn`t really get a good picture of the mark.The front of the beret is embroidered with the letters S.F.V. over a heart shaped peace sign. the numbers 6 and 9 are embroidered inside the top sections of the peace sign. The sweat band is made of smooth soft black vinyl.Any opinions on this beret would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for looking,
