    This is an East German cap on which someone has slapped a combination of an SS eagle and an army cockade/wreath.

    Its a one look fake. It is a rebadged post war East German visor cap. A complete and terrible fake.

    Poor attempt at trying to replicate a Third Reich visor. If you see the stamp inside "NVA - Nationale Volksaree" (Army of East Germany) you can determine that is a typical post war cap. You should find many examples of these fakes on the forum.

    I don't know caps, but I believe I can say with a fair degree of certainty that it's a fake! It's got an SS eagle with Heer cockade. Also, isn't NVA the Nationale Volksarmee (DDR)?

    EDIT: Beaten to it a record number of times!

    Hi HPL
    Yes I knew it, thanks a lot, one can find NVA on Google, it is a poor copy:

    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I like it! I think I will start using that one!

    That being said, NVA stuff isn't completely not valuable. There is a reasonable collector base for it. The problem is there is an absolutely ridicules amount of it, so there's much more supply than demand. I like to think that in 20 years it will be profoundly valuable and I will be able to sell off my NVA collection for thousands, but that's probably not going to happen.

    That should be Nationale Volksarmee.

    Erno is right. NVA and Volkspolizei are different things.
