 COPIES & FAKES 
On occasion, CAP insignia are replicated or reproduced in tribute to their historical significance. When collecting non-original copies, it is crucial that each piece is clearly identified and labeled as such to prevent possible misrepresentation. Collectors are urged to NOT purchase counterfeit insignia being passed off as authentic through internet sellers and services such as eBay. These fakes are usually one-off pieces from an overseas manufacturer or distributor.
