hi imo it is a post war border guard beret and badge. regards allan
It's a Bundeswehr beret as worn by all ranks.
Green is for Jäger, Panzergrenadiere, Gebirgsjäger and certain music corps.
The cap badge is for peaked caps and does not belong on the beret.
The large "A" (for "ausgesondert" or "ausgemustert") stamped on the label means it is a worn example that was found unserviceable by the military supply system.
Carl Isken KG of Köln [Cologne] is the manufacturer. It was manufactured in 1984 and is a size 58.
It's real, of course, but of very little financial value.
