    It certainly has no resemblance to a period original piece.

    Great for butt wipe. Soft and absorbent.

    Sadly not an original one, you can tell from the following points.....

    the insignia is reproduction
    the cut of the cap ie shape is wrong.....the translation of he German name is "little ship", this is more ocean liner
    no grommits at all for air holes, not essential but usually found as standard part of construction
    the soutache, v material at the front is wrong shape wrong colour and wrong type of material for the piping.....
    inside is badly put together imo

    a flim prop looks best descrtion of this piece..............

    Experience and reading some of the posts on the forum here will guide you to a nice original....

    Hope this are three originals, all different to give you a guide of what to look for ......
