    It is a fake. The 'cockade' within the wreath is incorrect,
    as is the chinstrap. ( The eagle might be original )

    The hat is post-war, East German I believe.........

    . Like OB said, even the eagle is fake.

    Just for comparison and additional reference, here is an East German Army officer's cap with its original insignia:

    (My only piece of GDR regalia, mostly bought because it was cheap.)

    My only GDR piece is a Grenztruppen Der DDR (border guard) trench coat bought for a tenner back in 1990 from a surplus store. Very cosy and warm I used to wear it around when I lived in the UK at that time.

    The cap that started this thread is an East German NVA Army EM cap with fake insignia added. You can see here what it should look like in its original state. wo009 - East German Communist Army NVA EM Peaked Cap - excellent condition Cheers, Torsten.
