    Not legit - looks like a costumers / movie prop IMO.
    cap sizes never had CM after them, tag is all wrong & bunched up, + wrong looking material & lining.

    Hi,

    Agree with Dan on those pictures I'd leave it, a real one is worth upwards of $5000 US.......whats he asking for it ?
    Have a look at the threads here to see the real deal !

    hope that helps.
    Good luck with your collecting.

    cheers

    Hi,

    I agree with Danmark and Spandau, really, nothing seams to be right with this one. I would most certainly leave it.

    Thanks for the advice guys, much appreciated, i asked the guy if it was real or repo and he wasnt sure, he thought it was real but didnt want to commit himself, also the asking price made me suspicious, $600, too cheap for a real one, but also IMO, too much for a repo.
    Thanks for the help, the knowledge on this site is amazing, im new to collecting and this is a great place to learn about my new hobby.

    Welcome to the Forum. Although the pictures are limited, this was an easy call as a fake as mentioned by my colleagues here. For your information, a gray cap is not exclusive to the Waffen SS. If the cap had a legitimate RZM tag, it would have been worn by any branch of the SS wearing the gray service uniform. The same for the blackClick image for larger version.

ID:	423393 cap which is so often called "Allgemeine SS." There are many genuine examples to be found in the archives of our forum by using the search engine.

    I would suggest that you'll never see "57cm" written in felt pen on an original hat.
