    Default M43 Found this in a trash dumpster. Fake or real??

    Hello I found this hat in a trash dumpster outside of a house of an eldery lady that passed away the other day. I was told it was a German M43 cap from WWII.
    Would love for it to be real but I have no idea. What do you think?

    I'm interested to hear what other members have to say about this! Good to know that there are other people out there saving things from their doom at the hands of the trash man!

    Thanks I was pretty shocked to see it in the trash. I assume it is a repo, but who knows?

    You really never know...

    People throw out amazing things everyday...

    Check out my thread. I've been finding helmets, medals, bayonets, fieldgear, etc. in the trash all summer!
    Finds in the GARBAGE!

    I can't comment on the authenticity of cloth headgear, but real or not, it's a cool thing to find in the trash.

    Hey, no sure if it is authentic or not, but replicas do sell. To reenactment groups.

    Didn't mean to gloat or brag! I'm just glad someone else was able to save something from oblivion!
