    In my opinion it looks like the silver piping was added on the cap later postwar.

    This is not an original cap in my opinion...

    I've not seen this type of cap made from this fabric before but the depot stamp BAW is correct for Bekleidungsamt Wilhelmshafen. Insignia including the Officers braid all looks good and period applied and I also like the grommets.

    I'd give it a cautious thumbs up.

    Yep, I'm convinced it's a good one now. Check this thread out:

    What concerns me is the poor definition of the scalloped front, which I would expect to be more pronounced and the piping to have have a more obvious change of shape where the piping follows the scallop. Otherwise it looks fairly convincing. The silver piping denotes an admin officer.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Original KM tropical hat. Insignia, piping correct for this model (Officer) this type hat and piping featured in a KM book I once had by possibly Bender. timothy
