    It looks black so it will be panzer but I am not sure about authenticity.

    I agree that it looks black, however the cockade color is what is throwing me.... haven't quite seen this done before.

    Maybe the cockade has been nibbled away by moths over the years, this cap may have also been worn by the Hitlerjugend as there is a HJ pin on the side.

    If anything,I would say Panzer EM that was former HJ. Or a G.I. might have stuck on when grabbing souvenirs.

    Hello,

    The cap is supposed to be a Heer black Panzer schiffchen,overseas cap. The early ones occasionally had standard Heer insignia sewn on. It is not unusual but needs to be scrutinized.I find it unusual that the cap eagle is sewn on in one style and the roundle in another. IMO somebody just pinned the HJ pin on it.

    Not necessarily true, NSKK caps are also black.

    i wouldn't mind for the pin... A pin may got pinned there for thousands of reasons during and after the war!!!! The problem is the different sewing type and the weird color on the roundle... If i had to base my purchase on these pics i would pass on it! Ask for better pics shot outdoors under direct sunlight!
