Marc I have never owned a real one I had a AK tunic first model once. Repo's of these abound have everysince the movie Tobruk in 1966 or so. Post it over at Afrika Korps Forum there are a lot of tropical experts over there will tell you. timothy
Every period original example I have ever encountered had an ink size stamp on the inside. back in the late 1960's, George Petersen, noted collector and dealer, turned up a stash of unissued caps with vpiped waffenfarbe. You could order them by branch color for #35.00 a piece. I bought an example of every color he had. They have been in collections now for over fourty years and it has been a very long time since I saw one from that lot.

Hi Marc, I can see the faded date and size markings.
It would be nice to see bigger pics of the insignia please.
