    Haven't handled an original A-3 lid in a while but the Buzz A-3 looks pretty good IMHO. The HBT is well done the the cut forms well to my lid. I get lots of strange looks rocking the turned up bill but who cares!

    GREAT caps. I have had a mash 7 1/4 for twelve years. LOTS of blood, sweat and tears involved in the regular
    wear over that time. Highly durable when compared to sports caps etc.

    Here is my MASH next to my NOS ELC A-3. Have a MASH A-3 in the box too, as a reserve for the wearer..

    HBT is a light shade, almost white....

    I generally roll up the brim when I wash it. The ELC has never been worn/rolled. The MASH one is used to it
    and holds 'the look' well.
