    Default M-43 field police Einheitsmutze Real or fake ?

    Good afternoon gentlemen

    Again I require your assistance to Identify this M-43 as original or not it would appear to have a field police trapezoid insignia on the front but upon closer inspection of the interior liner on the front of the cap I can see the faint outlines of were there was another trapezoid sewn on this cap at one time approx the same size as the one that is sewn on there now just a little higher on the cap. Should there not just be a trapezoid sewn on the front of this M-43 if it were heer or field police and the cockade sewn on the bottom. If original how much would this M-43 be worth as someone I know gave it to me as payment on a debt.

    Davejb I have pulled the cap out for another look and the ink stamp is not Russian I have posted these two photos up side down I will rotate the photos and repost them there are also the remnents of gold colored numbers as well as a three lined oval on the the plastic in the interior center of the cap I will see if I can capture them in a photo as well.

    Photo 1-2 on the bottom corner show what appears to be size mark 53 and above it to the right the only numbers still readable are 3068 there were apparently more numbers but are to faded to see now .

    Photos 4-5-6 would appear to be writing the best I can make out is JhBraur and the last four letters or numbers are hard to make out could be 66ac or hbac I CAN NOT TELL FOR SHUR WILL TRY AND USE A BLACK LIGHT SEE IF THAT HELPS.

    Photos 3-7-8 show the remnents of what I beleive to be a circle that is surounded by the remnants of three gold colored lines
