    I know this is the worst photo in the world, but from what I've seen these stand a chance.

    Not liking what I see and would say 'No' - Do you have
    a 'straight on' shot of the insignia ? The angle this
    has been photographed on is just plain silly.........

    I am so sorry, I have only one other angle.

    just from the poor photo angles already shown I am extremely doubtful that the insignia is good. Maybe its the angles, but the eagle just doesn't look right.

    Angled photography of collectibles is extremely hard
    to make any judgements on - and usually a sign
    of problems.

    Are you expecting this to be genuine insignia
    on a modern cap.........?

    Well, since it's too risky how do you tell fake totenkopfs and eagles?

    Please have a look through Forum posts for original
    insignia. There are many 'good' examples:

    I am not trying to be rude honestly, but how do you seriously expect anyone to authenticate a cap and insignia with these pics?

    This is a perfect example of collectors bring their own worst enemy.
