I'm sorry to tell you but this cap is not a WW2 cap.....
I think "1937" should be "1987".
The "B" in "Deutsches B-Patent" means "Bundes" , so it's "Deutsches Bundes Patent" and that's post-war.....
Kind regards ,
i always find it tough to have found something that turns out to be NOT what i thought it would be!!
thanx for letting me know!
Old trick--they scrape (or cutoff) numbers to make them appear wartime. Sorry, it is a 1987 BRD Postal hat.
i am new at this and was even so naive so i bought from that dude vern stuff from i offer.
though, you people here have seen it all so i am worried you will be too "tired" to look at us fresh collectos items?!!!!
though, i have some nice/cool reichsverband items : )
shit, that with the cap really put me down.
i am to naive?
bittaker, Theo is correct--we are all here to help one another. If you are interested in something, post it here first before you buy.
We have all done what you just did (and believe me, made some very costly mistakes back in the day). However, with the internet, once can reduce the risk of buying a bad hat practically to zero.
Keep posting in the meantime.
