    Default Luftwaffe cap-opinions please

    I bought this cap on Sunday from someone who told me it came from a house clearance. I bought it at a very reasonable rate along with some combat awards assuming at that price it was all repro stuff which would just bulk up my display room. On closer inspection I noticed the remains of silver blocking on the poor shape sweatband. Now at the price I paid I'm 99% certain it is indeed a repro but there's that 1% of me that lives in hope that I might have stumbled upon a right one by accident! Your thoughts are appreciated and I won't be heartbroken if you tell me I've got exactly what I paid for.Click image for larger version.

    Sorry the pictures are not the right way round. I uploaded them from an ipad and no matter how I tried they always came up skewhiff!

    Hi, welcome to the forum, can i ask how much did you pay for?
    Because, this one does not reflect the quality of this maker.
    Erel visors are of great quality and very desirable in the collectors market.
    Its not a good one in my opinion.

    £30 I paid for it. Like I said for that price I just assumed repro.

    This is a repro you were correct, not a bad price as these repro hats are not cheap

    You have assumed well.
    Hope the forum has been helpful.

    Thanks for the confirmation. I was under no illusions (apart from the 1%!) that is was any thing other than I thought it was but it still displays well hidden among my other stuff. Until that lottery win I'm always hoping for my collection will always be a hotchpotch of repro and genuine.

    Maybe you can post the combat awards in the Orders and Decorations forum too?

    Sorry but this is a fake. It's trying to be a triple eRel. The difference in quality between this and an original is like night and day.

    Cheers, Pat
