    This thread will feature sellers/makers that are reproducing TR hats to this day.
    All the hats on their sites are repros.
    What happens all too often is that they are turned around and sold as the real thing on Ebay/Facebook/Militaria321/etc.

    Michael Janke in Germany has been making repro TR visors (and uniforms) since the 1970s.
    A lot of them are now showing their age, and are still regularly being sold as real to this day (and fool many dealers).
    He does not have his own site, but Extra Klasse in the UK is one of the largest retailers of his wares:

    War Hats sells a different line of repros that are cruder than Janke.
    They will sell them brand new or artificially aged.
    They are regularly being sold as original on Ebay by unscrupulous individuals:

    Reddick Militaria is based in the USA and regularly set up at the SOS.
    Their visors are made by the company that owns the Erel trademark in Germany (but has nothing to do with the original Erel).
