    Default Heer M34 Feldmütze : Need help on this cap

    I may have made an amateur mistake, but I bought this cap before getting a second opinion. I've had a few of these side caps before, so I figured I would go with my instincts on this one. I paid $50 for it, so it will not be too much of a loss if the buy backfires on me. I was thinking it was some kind of mountain infantry cap, judging from the color of the eagle. The current pictures I have are not very clear. Just let me know what your first impressions are until I can post new pictures up when it arrives in the mail. Sorry I don't have any photos of the interior.

    Appears to be an original M34. Looks fine to me...

    Can I have a front view of the eagle. I'm looking for the stitching. And the inside. That would be great.

    Thanks for your help so far, unfortunately I don't have any more pictures. I will definitely post some high quality pics of the eagle, stitching, and the interior once the cap arrives in the mail.

    Sorry, but I think you have bought a bad one.

    The colour of the eagle has nothing to do with branch of service.

    Bad signs so far: Lack of air vent grommets: overall cut: material: suspect eagle?

    But lets see it all once you get it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I fear you may be right. I was browsing around about an hour ago looking for similar examples on dealer's websites. I came across a reproduction that had the exact same coloring and configuration as this one. I'll post pictures of the repro version if I can find it.

    Hi

    Sorry but I agree with Ade.

    I think for the above reasons it is not original. On the plus side you only paid what is is really worth !

    cheers

    Lesson: If the price is too good to be true, it probably is.
