    Note the different interiors, looks like they (fakers) have made a few
    Roger that, I was posting to say they were indeed different caps.

    What you see on that website (which bboywizard tells is to have a look) is anyway fake, in my opinion.
    The SA as well as the political leaders kepi. Upon the sweat-band it is said Archiv-Exemplar. This
    is not an expression which was in use, but Standardmuster.
    Sorry guys, but who knows I am making them wiser and the next generation will have a stamp with that
    expression.

    Erno: my English is not so good, what you mean about celluloid?
    Cypher, I have read that the plastic (celluloid) inside the cap should be clear, not cloudy. I don't know if my information is correct, though; I don't collect caps. Members Bob Coleman or Stonemint will know the answer.

    One of the benefits of belonging to a forum is you can post questionable pieces for guys to weigh in on...."before" you buy! If you're the new owner of this kepi I hope you got a return agreement from the dealer.

    ALmost all of the Kepis in that auction were high-end fakes.
    Another easy "tell" is that Clemens Wagner was not using that logo before 1938.
    Hat is a ground up fake--no original parts.

    The fakers have run poor old Clemens Wagner's name into the mud.
