    Default Original Schellenberg sonderklasse luftwaffe linings

    Hi Guy's and Girls,
    I would like to know if some kind sole could tell me please, if Schellenberg ever made a "Luftwaffe" officers schirmmütze with a Blue/Grey lining and grey sweat band. The book I have only mentioned the Luftwaffe officers schirmmütze has having a Gold lining with Tan sweatband.
    This is for the "Original Schellenberg Stirndruckfrei D.R.G.M Sonderklasse".
    Cheers guys.
    Kev.

    Sounds like the hat you are asking about might be a Janke. Can you get photos?

    This is a Janke (and unfortunately, being sold as an original in the current Hermann Historica Auction):

    Janke copies have been around at least 30 years and continue to fool people.

    Thanks Ade, is there any chance you could have a look at another one for me that I have on the "Cap Authentication forum" under the title "Panzergrenadiere Schirmmütze" I think that one's OK but I would just like it confirmed.

    Here is another Janke being sold as an original--these things still fool most ebay bidders to this day:

    It's pity we can't do something on here to get rid of them, I do my utmost to try to make sure I only buy original genuine visor's, that's why I come on here, if I did unknowingly purchase a fake and found out after the fact, it would be of no use to me at all, so I would probably destroy it. There must be quite a few of us on here buying fakes by genuine mistake, can't we get together and destroy them, I know good money has been paid for them but surely any of us with any conscious wouldn't want to put them back in the chain again "let's get rid of them".
