    I would expect a different RZM tag. I don't like this tag sorry. IMHO opinion it's "wrong" It is pretty new looking which there is of course nothing wrong with. There's just something about it that makes me feel bad.

    I actually also have my doubt's about the insignia.

    This model kepi is part of the reorganization of the NSKK in 1936, which made some design changes to the uniform including the kepi. The eagle head on the kepi is turned the wrong direction. As previously noted, the white RZM tag was obsolete by this time and the brown one was in use. This is a fairly good effort but definitely 4th Reich.
    On another note, looking new condition can not be trusted as a piece being a fake. I have many pieces in my collection that are period but appear to be like new. All depends on how items were treated and stored over the past 68 years.

    My personal opinion isnt different from Lars and Harrys, the material seems to new, including the chinstrap.
    The leather on it, does not seem to have any use at all.

    There's actually also issues with the "chinstrap". It's only my opinion. However all my political head gear have different RZM tags than this one.

    Being new looking is not a problem as Bob says.

    Bob, have they used a period eagle on the Kepi?

    It appears so. I have to check and see what the usage of this insignia actually is.

    I have looked up the Herstellerfirma Nr A.1-104. I can find 2 items with this number. A HJ sport badge and dubious political eagle on Ioffer. I'm just wondering if "cap" manufacturer also would make badges? Fakers often take a random Manufacturer number and use it on all sorts of items.
