    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.

    Cheers, Ade.
