    Default My first cap lots of pics for review

    Hi all,
    Thanks for helping me so much, I got my first cap, I went with this near mint Luft nco flight cap by lubstein, please look over the pictures, let me know any concerns or thoughts with its authenticity, I tried to take as many pics as possible to give you a "in hand" look at it, it has about 3 seperate small moth nips and a small tear in the front of the sweatband and it definatly smells right! Im not sure what the stamping is on the inside sweatband but I saw one just like it before so I think its more unit related then soldier related, any help with that would be great, My next cap will be a heer officer, just waiting for the right one to come along

    I did some research on the stamping, and basically it means "airfield commanders office gardelegen" which was a german airfield during ww2, so im assuming that they stamped where the hat was going to or ordered from...........and im not sure how rare this is but I found a matching 1939 lubstein luft nco "signals" cap for sale on a website with the same exact stamp on the inside. first pic is the signals cap second pic is my cap. your thoughts?

    Good looking cap! I do not have a luftwaffe cap in my collection.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    These type of stamps are found in prewar Luftwaffe caps. They indicate the unit the wearer was assigned to.

    I should buy the signals luft cap also just because the same unit markings make it the sister to this one, they should be together
