nice cap,,i like those luft officers'
Re-worked postwar BRD Luftwaffe visor. Note that the sweatdiamond is plastic. Also, Carl Halfar's name is spelled out--they never used this during the TR. Lastly, the ribbing on the mohair band is always less pronounced than on the TR lids. A good job, and meant to deceive (except for the sweatdiamond).
NEC SOLI CEDIT
I think the cap cords are slightly thicker than normal as well, reminds me of some that are produced in Spain
Your knowledge and expertise is appreciated.
I agree it is a wrong one and will post it in the fake caps thread for reference.
Agreed, a post war Halfar.
100% in agreement, postwar fabrication. However very nice looking repro though.
1) Luft Visors are NEVER EVER joined at the back on the center band
2) I totally agree the sweat diamond is plastic and with the wrong Carl Halfar markings
3) I cant tell from the picture but is the visor crosshatched underneath or is it smooth green? if smooth no good
again however an EXCELLENT reproduction, I wouldn't hesitate to use it as a filler in a collection untli acquiring a perfect one!
