    I am new to the forum and I need help determining if this hat is original or reproduction. Purchased as reproduction, possible original. Would appreciate your comments.

    IMO - not a repro but a conversion from another cap.............and a very interesting one at that.

    Hi,Thanks for info. Do you have a feel for what conversion was made? I have collected for 50 years, and I get a feeling when I find something unusal.
    It has always been part of the fun of this passion.The visor is leather,and cloth covered visors where found on ss nco hats,but never seen one on a Heer
    hat.There are always exceptions to anything with Third Reich collecting.

    Seeing the Insignia and the top of it might help also. William

    From the images, I consider the cap to be the product of a 4th Reich manufacturer. The label appears to be "Erel." I know of no period examples of an army officer's field visor with a cloth bill. The eagle is too large in comparison with original period examples. I believe the advertisement of it as a reproduction is correct. In fact, it is fantasy.

    The stamp is an Erel stamp that says Sonder Klasse Berlin inside the diamond.Below the diamond it says Extra inside a rectangle.

    i can't think of any current issue visor cap with a felt peak it must be fantasy or put together by some crack pot is teh peak bendable (eg does it feel like their is plastic underneath or not)
