    Feel for material between the lining and the exterior wool. In the front should feel like a lattice of thin, flexible material. The back half of the cap body and the crown will have a thin layer of padding. If these features are present, your cap is a modern (post 1956) cap.

    Depending on the shade of grey, your cap could be Heer or possibly DRK. These originally would have had a grey leather sweatband.

    As already noted, the large "A" indicates the item was deemed surplus -- Aussonderung/ausgesondert
