    Hi Team,
    Just a quick posting to show a pair of m40's that were manufactured by the same maker, same year, but one slightly older than the other. One pre-RB#, the other post RB# introduction. Interesting
    Regards,

    Cheers militarymania, too late for DAK though. Panzerarmee Afrika, possibly, but more likely Italian front...

    Hello Mark,
    Those are nice caps...
    Interesting to see how they kept the initial pre-RBNr marking just adding the latter when it was adopted. It looks like hidding their name/location was not a priority for this maker.

    The second cap shown in this thread, and many other caps of which a majority of soutached examples can be seen in the article about tropical caps co-signed by Mark and myself and published in the July issue of the french Militaria Magazine (300th issue).
    Here's a link to a WRF thread that shows some photos of reconstructions taken for the article. Some were used, some not :
