    Original.

    These were made in France as the guys have already said. They did a subtle act of sabotage to the production and made a lot of caps in very small sizes. However, the Germans caught on and sent them back, hence the extra bit of cloth let into the cap to make it bigger.

    So the 55 is the original size and the 60 is the size after the addition?

    Very interesting ......

    Correct.

    I got the info from our good forum friend Wim's book on headgear many years ago.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree with that theory, but I found something interesting

    Coastal artillery overseas cap produced in Germany/small size and re-worked in France?
