    I would say this is a post war Bundeswehr cap, the sweat band for one has a plastic backing to it and the peak has the grey inner which is normal for BW

    I agree with our esteemed colleagues. This is post WW2 and does not have correct insignia.

    Just to expand upon the bad insgnia: this is a British made fake from the 1970's and is a terrible copy of the dress wear KM tropical pith helmet eagle. Note how the swastika is canted out of alinement.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Glenny, you can buy these caps at any little military stall on markets, arms fairs etc , for around 5.00 , i think it might help you if you get one just for the opportunity to examine the materials, construction, and design, etc then you will be able to compare against original examples shown on here

    Yes, be careful with these. This is for the Bundesgrenzchutz, or BGS of the BRD.
