    I am sure this is a fake as it cost me $25, but before I do something foolish I would like our experts to confirm that for me.

    It looks like one of the large lot of original unissued caps found in Holland in the 1960's. I think you made an excellent buy.

    These were found in two piece and trapazoid insignia. In the 60's, they were everywhere for $15.00. Along with the caps were found large quantities of fallschirmjaeger bandoleeers in camo gray and tan and unissued other ranks flieger jackets which could be purchased by size and branch color blank collar tabs for $50.00. Eventually, all of this was absorbed into collections.

    Unusual that it features air vent grommets. Also only one row of stitching around the edge of the turn up flap above the buttons.

    Cheers, Ade.
