    Default Heritage 1912 cap design

    I just received a Heritage 1912 and I absolutely love it, but I noticed something about the cap design I wanted to ask any fellow owners about.

    Does the bottom of your cap (with clip facing right) have a small indentation? At first I thought it was a dent/damage, but the location and geometric nature seem more purposeful than haphazard.

    Do yours have the same? Any idea what the purpose is?

    Looks like a molding defect when the cap was made. Did not see anything like that on the 1912 I just got in new.

    That would be my guess as well, except I spell it 'moulding'.

    Therefore, value it like an upside-down Jenny airplane postage stamp.

    It looks like a moulding defect to me. I'm surprised that got through quality control checking. Wait..... maybe not so surprised.
