    The eagle is not original to the cap.
    I can't say about the cap.

    Ditto SteveR's remarks - the eagle is for an SA 'coffee can'/Kepi,
    but someone has bent the heck out of it. The diamond
    looks ok, but wait for more responses.........

    No.
    The eagle goes on a SA coffee can style kepi.
    The eagle for the army cap is a different design.

    Eagle looks better/normal now that the wings are straightened !

    The eagle for the visor is smaller and has a thinner wing
    design. HJ should not have one at all, so you were
    correct in removing it.

    Below is what the visor eagle should look like.........

    The cap is an odd color for HJ. The color of the cap and piping is reminiscent of the color of a German fireman's uniform. HJ equipment should also have a RZM label inside the cap. This is likely a cap worn by a HJ working with the Fire Protection Police and the cap came through their sources so therefore no RZM tag.

    So you think everything in the photos are real. Alsso does that make the hitler youth hat more rare being from a fire brigade
