    The insignias appear to be reproductions IMO.

    Insignia not original. In my opinion, the cap itself resembles the Janke repro style (trikotage, sweatband...) Also, the piping would be for general and chin strap NCO, not officer.

    Correct, artificially aged Janke repro

    This cap was shown on The German Helmet Walhalla II website as well. The same conclusions were reached.

    Yup! See link below if you are a member there.

    Sorry, you do not have permission for that!

    Very odd that this is being sold as original as the member on GHW stated he "put on the NCO strap" to keep the shape. I wonder if he is now selling this? And as an original???

    Please see my edited comment above.

    Am wondering who is selling this as it was clearly stated on the other forum it is a fake.

    It's the well known fake 'mustache' TK.

    Yes, I agree. If you want another example of the fake moustache Tk you need not look any further than one being sold on the veteransfootlocker website for comparison.
