    It's not my area, but I can see that the cords are twisted reverse, which is never a good sign.

    Any better pictures? The colour of the piping is hard to make out. If this is green I'd say a post war FRG-police cap. The whole construction makes me think of that. Is there any filling material between the lining and the outer fabric of the cap? Feel the 2 side panels at the front - there should be cotton wool/cotton waste inside which you can feel. If you see any sticky, crumbly material come out of the lining you know that this is a post war piece (this is the decaying foam rubber that was used from the 60ies onwards as stiffening material for the 4 top panels).

    I strongly suspect its fake but its very difficult to assess a cap on the basis of such poor quality pictures. I cant see the materials its made of, I cant even be sure of the color of the liner band and peak underside.

    sorry guys about the quality (for some reason they're uploading to my computer a little blurry). Here's a few of behind the sweat band and a close up of the material and insignia.

    I opt for post-war Schleswig-Holstein police (I own the white version of such a cap, maker: Gebr. Klotz of Kiel, they display a sailing ship as their logo above the name, perhaps you can discern something like it in your cap) - light green piping which here is supposed to be Jäger, green underneath of the peak and the construction make it clear for me. Did you have a feel? When you rub lining and side panels and you feel that the lining sticks to the panels you can be sure of a post war specimen. Another thing: how many holes are there behind the isignia? Any empty holes?

    Hi,

    Sorry but I also think post war cap and agree with the above post about the police theory.

    Cheers
