Heer Schirmütze: original or a repro?

Article about: Yia sou patrida. An original cap, as the other guys have already said, with a replaced sweetband. The fact that it has a bulion wreath but a NCO chinstrap is weird to me. Probably one of tho

    Looks good to my novice cloth headgear eyes. I would not take that as a guarantee though, wait for more experienced opinions.

    The cap "looks ok" with reservations, the eagle and roundel look to have been added, the liner has been resewn very badly; i would think that at one time the insignia was all embroidered, but i would wait for some more comments before making a move on it, its a very dirty cap and could do with a bit of TLC

    Hi

    Original cap for a signals uniut. The piping looks lemon yellow on these photos.

    It is an early cap about 1936/37 as the celluloid is diamond not rhomboid. also sweatband been replaced (badly) by the stitches through the top onto and through were it joins the peak.

    The insignia are added IMO but the nice early wreath may well be original as it is the old style german silver version. It is for an nco by the chinstrap but that does not mean that the wreath is wrong.

    Private purchase cap by the look of it but the photos need to be clearer to be 100 %. material looks nice doeskin type.

    hope this helps...ilike it

    cheers

    The restitched liner for me is a genuine detriment. Personally, I would wait to find an example in better condition. From the images you posted, it is difficult to determine if anything else has been fooled with. With cloth items, it is always wise to buy excellent or better condition.
