    Hey everyone. A friend of mine has this hat and I know nothing about german cloth headgear so if anyone can help me ID this and maybe a reasonable price, I would greatly appreciate it. Due to the tan color, I'm wondering if it's Afrika Corp. Thank you!

    It appears to be a good one , but more photos would help . A close up of the inside and outside of the vents etc . The German name is Einheitsfeldmutze , they were used in tropical areas North Africa , Italy etc . Good luck with it .

    Looks to be a good M40 tropenmutze, an early example with its arm of service colour soutache removed.

    A couple of grand value.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    no doubt that is a original M40 tropenmutze.

    I just wanted to rule out or verify that it could belong to gebirgsjäger-regiment 756 DAK.
    for the "service colour soutache removed".


    nice one.

    I really like what I see - it looks right from here, would like to see more photos overall and also close of the air vents.

    I love these caps, I was lucky enough to woodwork a rare maker with transport soutache a few years back.

    These photos are from an older post , I'll have to take some newer ones . If and when the sun come out . I got this hat from a family member , couldn't believe it . When I first saw it in the box , I thought it was a Korean War era Canadian Air force cap . It made my year .

    Here are a couple of new shots of my Tropical M-43 , I'll have to make a new tread with both this and my Tropical Sun helmet .
