    Default Original Heer Einheitsfeldmütze?

    Was looking to add a decent example of an M 43 (Einheitsfeldmütze) to my small but growing TR headgear collection. Hard to part with the cash for a mint example. Found this one that looks promising. Has the grease and and a good aged look to it. It has also been de-nazified. Looks like a rayon lining with a date of 1943. Let me know what you guys think of it.

    Looks like it stands a good chance to me from what i can see in the photos but would need a hands on look to be 100% sure

    The swastika is just hidden with a black thread stitched around as it looks like from the pics.
    When u remove the thread there is a chance that the swastika is still underneath

    Could very well have been modified to be worn in captivity by the prisoner. Same reason for cutting off the roundel.

    Due to pressure of work I have not been as active as normal, so I am playing catch up here.

    HI Aaron, it is bad.

    Problems:

    1) De-Nazification would not usually involve removal of the national colours. They would either remove the swastika or take off the whole badge.

    2) The wool as stated.

    3) You can see a trace of rust on the interior where an air vent grommet (Incorrect for this cap) has been removed. The other side is hidden in the pic and I think it was posed like it for the photograph.

    4) The rayon like lining looks fairly convincing in the pics: however, I have handle fake Officer's M38 cap (sold as such) which had just the same lining material.

    5) The wear. Overdone and in the wrong places.

    Cheers, Ade.
