    Default SS Side Cap - real or fake?

    All,

    I'm looking to buy this SS side cap. Would like to know people's opinions on it.

    I'm buying it from a US veteran's family.

    He served from Omaha beach all the way to Germany. They are selling a number of his souvineers and this is one of them. Or so I am told.
    I'm yet to get his name to double check the story.

    The item is a M40 SS side cap.
    The insignia are much earlier than the cap with the eagle being a hammerhead type. The skull is also early and hand embroided.
    I'm assuming the owner of the cap has deliberately resued his old insignia on a newer cap.

    The insignia was removed years ago by the veterans wife so that his boy could use the cap in a Halloween costume. Or at least that's what I am told.

    The cap has metal grommets which I'm unsure are original and which are my chief concern with the authenticity of the hat.

    If anyone has any comments on side cap please post them.

    Thanks Carl
