Need help with authenticity of this DAK tropenmutze,
Hi all, this just popped up on a local site for sale, I do not know much about German headgear but I like the look of this cap. I would like to know if the cap looks like an authentic wartime item, any help is greatly appreciated.

Personally I do not like it's chances from what my own research has come up with.
I'm afraid you are correct, as FB would state......a stinker for sure..............
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
Hi John, I had a bad feeling but always pays to be sure, thank you greatly for your confirmation
I woudn't touch that with a barge pole!
