    Hello Mrg...welcome to the forum and a nice cap for sure as William says...what designation is the Gold piping on the cap? Different colors represent different levels of authority. Regards Larry

    No expert on these by any stretch of the imagination, but amongst other details which Im sure those in-the-know could reveal, should there not be a deep indentation from the eagle after decades of 'setting,' had the visor cap been real?

    Hello Mr. Stonemint thanks for the advice but I would like to point out that the same hat that you has entered in the forum "cap authentication-Reichsleiter by Hertlein," on p. 2 In fact, the pictures posted are taken by a well-known site and mine and the same hat but with its attributes attached. I wonder why and posted on the forum "cap authentication" if it is a copy? Thanks Mr.G

    I certainly agree that this cap is not a 3rd Reich era cap. The quality of the piping installation is poor. It also appears to be slightly smaller in diameter than a genuine example. The sweatband is a poor fit. The sweatshield logo is also off from an original example by this manufacturer.
    To answer Larry's question, this cap is supposed to represent the cap of one of the Reichsleiters. Piping for members on the Reichsleitung level wore a gold yellow piping. The confusion comes due to the fact that too many collectors incorrectly refer to a member of the NSDAP Reichsleitung level as "Reichsleiter." The same error in language can also be found at all four levels of the NSDAP/

    All hats posted in the pinned threads are ones that have had their authenticity questioned, or are outright fakes--that is why we call it the "Cap Authentication Forum".
