    Default Luftwaffe visor cap, probably a fake but just want a second opinion =D

    Hey guys i have been offered this and i believe i can get it for a good price, its probably either a repro or maybe a post-war visor cap which has been modified as its in near-enough mint condition, it is made by Albert Kempf who did make ww2 Luftwaffe visor caps so thats why it could stand a chance
    Well see what you think and thanks for your time

ID:	255161 as can be seen there are some differences and as you may know the german police had hundreds of variations for its police force (now obsolete) these caps are now becoming scarce (because they can be turned into TR versions)

    Hi Tom, no actually it is a West German Luftwaffe Officers schirmutze, not a converted Police cap. Note the colour and the cap band and the piping. Plus the colour of the inside and sweatband.

    Cheers, Ade.

    ade the bundeswaffe made caps similar but the actual visor was actually felted on this would show on the peak if removed unless im thinking of a different cap
