    Default Officer Hats and Medal.. Real or Fake?

    Hey folks, im new here.. I know a little bit about german helmets but when it comes to caps and medals I'm clueless.
    Went to my local antique and found these hats. Which im pretty sure are fake. The medal however maybe real. First thing I noticed about the ss hat is that it had a luftwaffe emblem and the skull looked a bit.. off.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    I believe that all of these items are either post war or outright fakes. The Panzerkampf Abzeichen is called the "blob fake". The SS Officer's visor carries fake insignia and the Luft visor I believe is post war with war time style of insignia which I believe to be copies as well.
    Sorry,
    Ralph.

    Agreed: This is is definitely a post-war cap from the Federal German Luftwaffe on which someone has slapped fake Third Reich-style badges and cap cords. (And mismatched ones at that, with a Heer eagle and a Luftwaffe wreath.)

    Omg!!!!!!!! The black SS visor!!!
    Probably from an SS EM/NCO who was with the Luftwaffe and who added his selfmade SS skull to it...

    :-)))
