    Default SA Kepi's Opinions Needed

    Hi All,
    I am wanting to purchase a SA Kepi, I feel they are a rare and important part of the Third Riech that belongs in my collection, my budget can only handle a salty one, so here are 3 salty examples in the same price range, my question is which one would you choose, is one Gruppe more rare then the others? First one is Pink Sudmark(missing liner, broken eagle prong) second is Orange/Yellow Sudwest(missing sweatband, faint maker mark, and last is the dark Green Kurpfalz(worn around the edges) Please help me choose! Assuming from my limited knowledge and study they are all period originals, Thank you!

    The first two are definitely fakes. The third could be. Does it have a RZM tag? The photos show just enough to attempt to fool the novice.

    No tags Bob, I shall stear clear of them all. They fooled me but I know better to be cautious with these which is why I asked first.

    I am not surprised at all. The construction is poor and the shapes are off. Good decision to trash the idea of buying any of them. Dealers in fakes seldom have genuine material.
