    Default Waffen SS Einheitsfeldmütze, cavalry: fake or real?

    Hello,
    I bought this cap along with some other medals and a helmet.
    The helmet is real and also the medals are 100% real. But on this cap i need your help cause i dont have a clue. These days a lot of fakes are on the market so i need some help.
    Correct me if im wrong but i think this is a m43 fieldcap of a SS cavalry unit.
    Brought back from a holiday in Norway some 15 years a go, is the story from the men I bought it from.
    Looks like there was something in the hat, like a label or something in the shape of a diamond.

    Sorry this is a post war cap: note the piping, wartime caps were never piped. Also note the twin air vents, another red flag, as is the material were the sweatband once fitted. The insignia is fake too.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello JJ,

    As Ade has already stated, the cap is a reproduction piece. I hope that you are able to get a refund from the seller.

    Note the plastic edging where the sweat band attaches, never to be seen on wartime caps
