    Default German M41,m43 and camo caps

    Hi,

    I've been on a hiatus from collecting for the past three years while trying to pay off some student loans. However, I was recently given the opportunity to go through my friend's late-grandfather's military collection. In a box in the attic he had four caps varying from an Afrika Corps M41 to a Camo M43 and regular M43 cap.

    My first initial gut feeling is that they are all reproductions due to the markings and I am skeptical due to their exceptional condition. There is also no sign that any insignia was ever applied to the caps. Nonetheless I wanted to check them here to make sure that they are indeed reproductions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    -Brian
