    Hi Gentlemen here is a M43 cap that's up for sale I have a number of issues with it but am I being harsh? the colour seems off ..the interior cotton looks more like a mesh and it lacks the double stiching above the buttons. But maybe it is just and orginal that doesn't conform to the standard? unusual

    Many thanks Matt

    The inside of the cap is unusual as you stated. The eldeweiss looks okay IMO

    Hello,
    It is not an issue Bergmütze, but rather a privately purchased example made of a material like felt
    Thanks
    There's a new Spiess in the youtube garrison, so 150 push-ups in a row, 15 stadium laps and no leave for the next month for all those who don't type " d3rNooB Spi3ss " in the YT search bar......Verstanden ?

    Thanks for the feedback, were soldiers normally allowed to add badges to the side or is this a symbol of some unit?

    The edelweiss was the badge of the mountain troops:

    Thanks for the feedback ...so it is likely an original WW2 period item but just not a regular issue. Am I correct?

    regards Matt

    Hi,

    This cap is an original period made cap from the maker Hermann Gollhofer / Innsbruck (located in Tyrol / Austria) - i have seen a couple of other caps from this maker. All do have the same traits like this Kind of wool, lining, sweatband, button holes etc.

    They appear with trap insignia and also T-badge - most with Edelweiß badge - a friend of mine found one with factory applied SS insignia many years ago from this maker but the cap was so damaged from moths that he kept only the insignia.....

    Sweatbands on the caps are sometimes different and some of this caps do have 2 materials used for the lining and some do have only one lining material.
