    I am quite new to collecting and aquired this cap labeled as a africa corps cap from a seller in austria along with some other pieces which seem very original.
    Does anyone have any advice on weather it is authentic?

    Personally ,ive never seen one with the palm tree motive, plus the colour seems wrong to me, but i know there will be some other comments, also there was a thread on here re the different types of DAK caps

    Maybe it was a factory reject due to being sewn incorectly? I doubt anyone producing fakes would be as careless, but it might happen!

    IMHO the Afrikamutze is a fake...even fakers can make mistakes or even do that purposely in order to create a "rarity".Could you please post a CLOSE-UP picture of the grommets and tell us their size on the outer side in millimiters?Whatever their size and their nature this cap remains a fake IMO!

    This is a fake IMHO, I doubt they would use the "Palm" marking on headgear(It is very commonly placed as a decal on a helmet to make it "Super-rare"). Plus: How come the other markings are aged, and no the "62"? I would run away in a jiffy.
