Same here. Later war (?) issue cap with ersatz sweatband. What type of marking were you looking for? There is often (but not always maker / date stamps inside of the band) but with an issue cap I would not expect other visible marks beyond the size.
(Anyone else, please feel free to confirm or correct)
Given the nips or wear of the fabric around the sweatband and condition of the insignia maybe you could knock it down a bit?? I see these going for retail in the low $400 range to much more.
Overall a nice cap.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Yes, a good cap. Looks like a small size. NH
Cap looks OK to me, and it appears to be a pre-war version, given the light shade of green for the band. Also looks like a nickel silver wreath that's tarnished. Cannot tell from the photos if it's a tellermutze or sattelmutze shape.
It is fine and pre war. It is a lower quality private purchase cap.
