Pictures of the grommets would help, but I'm not liking a few things personally
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
This is what a German Auctionhouse (Das Berliner Auktionshaus für Militaria) says about a similar sidecap, same size, only different year:
Schiffchen, gewebte Effekten, Gr.-Stpl. "57" u. Herst. "Gustav Reinhart Berlin 1943", "Tragespuren", Sammleranfertigung
so that sidecap was a repro...this one will be no better i guess
the sidecap has no grommets! any other photos?
Gerrit, thanks for your opinion! Do you have maybe a link?
Thank´s Gerrit! And also you John! I'll bring it back to the seller!
Hi, I'm not very keen with that auction house.
