I wanted to let you know that the kepi arrived today safely. A super nice kepi! Also wanted to say that it was a pleasure doing business with you.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
