    Default authenticity of two schirmmütze?

    Just checking the authenticity and trying to get more information on these, possibly Generalstab?
    I have the possibility to purchase these caps, a pair of boots and a coat with feldwebel instinctions.

    Any thoughts?

    Personally it struck me as a replica due to the lack of makers markings and/or tags, and the placements of the decorations, am I wrong here?

    Sorry, not even close to any kind of senior officer / official. Therefore if genuine they should be massively cheaper. If not then whatever you are willing to pay if you want them.

    In the first instance these would be Feuerschutzpolizei (Fire Police) EM / NCO types. But I am not sure of originality as this is not my field beyond recognition of type. What bothers me is not the absence of the maker "diamond" but that it has clearly been removed. The handwritten script inside is obviously the name of the owner and FSP VI would likely denote a FSP (Feurschutzpolizei) unit but "Reichskanzelei! Really?? The lining and sweatband look a bit odd to me as well but as I said, this is not my field but wait a minute there will be one of our resident specialists along shortly!

    PS Let us see the other items too.

    The lot was nice but in general there were just a few inconsistencies, and a general lack of maker markings on the items. There is also a Narvik Shield lying around in that cellar somewhere, so expect pictures of it shortly!

    The cap on the left (the one with the stupid "Reichskanzlei Manfred Scholzer" and the even more stupid stamp on the lining) is a post-war Feuerwehr (presumably produced by Alkero due to the making), the cap on the right has a chance, but without photos of the interior I can't tell for sure.

    It looks rather well-worn, and the lack of a 'diamond worries me..

    There is a sweat shield/diamond there, there's just nothing printed on/underneath it. This is post-war too, by the way - have a look at the waterproof lining of the top panel and see here: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/cloth-...elp-id-684825/

    alright, there are tons of red waving flags here, so I'll stay away from this lot I think.

    Like I said, I am not a hat guy and I was unhappy with these. The boots too are not wartime I feel. The maker "Salamander" is still in business and I'll bet you know more than one woman who has a pair of Salamander (comfy casual probably) shoes! Regardless of whether the seller knows what these are I would not be inclined to trust; in the best case his judgement or in the worst case his motivation.
