    Hello everyone. I just got my first M43 cap, and was hoping you all could tell me if it is original or not. If it is original, it is in really good shape, so that scares me usually. Luckily I didn't pay a whole lot for it. If you want any more specific pictures let me know. Thanks!

    Looks like a Janke made copy.

    Note the colour of the liner. The grey colour with a pinkish hue is typical.

    An original would not have the insignia badly sewn on if it was originally applied.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ah damn. Thanks for the reply Ade. I got it off a gunbroker auction from a seller that is pretty reputable, and listed it as original. Maybe even he didn't know it was a repro. I guess I can be glad I didn't pay full price though.... so just curious, did all of the original liners have the same color?

    Liner colour and material type will vary from maker to maker.

    Some are cotton, others are rayon which can be smooth or HBT.

    Cheers, Ade.
