    Hello,
    Dan : if you're not happy with the cap just get your money back...and get another one if you want. They're dealers and dealers are used to it...
    Feeling comfortable with an item is important especially if it's not in your field...
    Thanks

    The cap on the Picture showing Sturmbannführer Hans Köller (tank Regiment 5 / Wiking - KIA at Tscherkassy 1944) looks like a normal leather Peak like found on "alte Art" caps .

    The stripe on the Peak is imo just some Kind of light Reflex. Click image for larger version.

    Different makers - different Peaks - a lot is possible - here is a "Paul Kaps" example. I think this Visor is looking like the examples Mr. ErWeSa is refering too.

    Not quite. This wonderful Kaps cap displays what seems to be a leather visor with one "lip" - the common example (apart from the also common [although leather visors were, of course, not common] leather visor with no "lip" at all as shown by F.-B. e. g. here: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/attach....07-copy-2.jpg). What is so unusal for a German cap is the double lipped visor which was characteristic for russian peaks.

    Oh, i will keep it for sure... i really like it a lot.. The cap went thru a World War, so a thousand things might have happened. I like its looks and vibes (... as much as a NAZI-cap can give good vibes.. ) and every time i look at it it gives me happiness and joy.. And after all, that´s what´s all about, isn´t it?
