    Default Hermann Goering Division Schirmmütze with Bullion Insignia, opinions needed please.

    Hello guys, I have been offered this visor cap as well as a General Assault Badge. I am sure that this is not a postwar mock-up visor cap. The bullion wreath and cockade seem to be well made, could somebody help me out please?
    Thanks, Glen.

    I dont like it, but as Im not a collector of these, dont take my word for it.

    Agree with Scout, it just looks wrong to me. The wool and the visor and the lining do not seem anything like those I have seen previously. I don't remember seeing one with bullion piping either though if I remember correctly it was used at one time and would be for an officer and does not indicate HG Division. Has it got any HG unit markings as nearly all original are marked in some way to which ever HG unit they were for, IE General Goering regiment or HG division etc...
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    the cap outside and inside looks like those repros from China.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I;m looking at the interior visor which looks like its been restitched but the original holes have;nt been used, i'm wondering if this is a Janke copy

    Whatever it is, it is 4th Reich as the material, lining and visor are incorrect as previously stated. What gave you the impression this had anything to do with the HG Division?

    I agree with the above--it is a fake. It appears to be a combination repro/franky, with postwar parts.

    Funny how they used laurel leaves on the cockade instead of oakleaves....

    Agreed reproduction does not stand a chance

    Crappy fake of a Luftwaffe officer's cap.
