    Hi, no, sorry I cannot tell you that. I do know that those particular fake insignias have been around since the 1980's.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The interior and logo are incorrect. The silver piping does not match that of known period examples. I would suggest that a close up inspection of the piping installation would tell all. As Ade mentioned the insignia are known copies. Finally, I would also believe that a hands on examination would show wool inferior to that used in period. I can not tell you when this hat was made but it is undoubtedly bad.

    Yet more images....the cap in question for a senior rank officer would be a very costly item, indeed. The cap at the top of this file is a fake of some longevity that is pretty widespread in the internet.

    Maederer has one of these for a field grade rank for sale, if you have a spare five figure sum in your shrinking bank account.

    Happy headwear.
