No good IMO.
wrong shape for an army cap and the piping is odd. It may be a period cap that's been messed with but that's the most optimistic I can be.
Thanks Tony, I got a little too excited and didn't do my homework with this one. I can't believe how hard it is to find a m34 heer schiffchen cap!
They are about but are getting hard to find.
Is it a M34 you are after as that is the other ranks example ?
The M38 is for officers and has the trimmings on ie. piping and bullion eagle etc.
Good luck hunting !
Haha, yes, I meant M38 in the title, and I would rather have an M34. I also have a sad preference for "salty" items, which makes my search harder. Thanks for the reply, and I appreciate all that you post here on the forum.
No problem! thanks for the kind words.
If you want a reference point on examples of original caps then look on this dealers website. depending on your budget they always have nice examples.
This is in no way a recommendation to buy and i urge you as always check things out first. I know they do have an excellent reputation although i have not done business with them as yet.
