    While Johann Frey did exist, this one appears to be part of a series of copies made in the 1980s in Germany, and I believe were sold by one Wolfram Deibel out of Germany.

    Do a forum search for "Johann Frey" in the cap authentication forum and a number of these will pop up. Most are Luftwaffe and WH EM/NCOs if I recall correctly.

    ME, these are tough fakes to detect, and are really well made. Plenty of dealers still sell these as originals to this day.
