    Hi guys,

    Could I please get your opinions on these three visor caps? I have a Heer artillery officer's cap, a Forestry service officer's cap, and an SA kepi.

    Thanks for you help, gentlemen.

    All the badges and chin straps look brand new, poor definition and no wear or patination at all. What worries me more is that the vendor appears to be the same guy as the one with the SS helmet you posted and I liked! I'm having second thoughts now to be honest...

    From what I can see in the images, the caps all appear to be period. The Forestry cap has a political form eagle which is incorrect. It should have the civil form eagle. However, period photographs have shown various caps with the incorrect badge. I would like to see an interior shot of the kepi but it looks good from the images posted. It appears to be a sky blue top color for Gruppe Hochland. Does it have the Hochland edelweiss on the left side?
