    Default Identification of luftwaffe cap, real or fake?

    I have been given this cap. I am not a luftwaffe collector and cant identify it. It is of the M43 type but in blue grey cotton. The cap is quiet worn but the badge on the front is not, I strongly suspect the badge is fake. There is a faint RB number stamped on the inside in black ink, and a size marking. Is the cap fake? What sort of cap is this?

    Quite the oddball, I don't think the trapezoid is an original one, could we see a close up?

    Ade, could you do the honours and move the thread over please?

    trapezoid photo added, however I dont think this is a genuine patch either. Has anyone seen another cap like this?

    May be fake but I like it! It just has that strange home made vibe. The material is very unusual. NH
