Is this a Kriegsmarine Bordmütze?

Article about: This was given me by a work associate. His father brought it back as a souvenir. I'm not a collector, certainly no expert, what do you think?

    Thanks for your help guys. I appreciate your knowledge. The helmet can be found in the helmet section. The board agrees it's a nice M-40 Heer, single decal.

    I have just found a nice cap like thise one but in better condition, It seems to be original, but you are the experts..the strange thing is that the midle section of the top is stiched along all lengt (manualy) for some reason..perhaps for preventing it from loosing form of the top?

    Just take some more pictures
    at the first one the stiches can be seen
    others two are details of the insignia - taken without and with flashlight (if it's fake the insignia is most obvious clue or not ? )

    Hi,
    the insignia looks good, IMO, from these pics.
    The top of KM caps are often sewn together, for fashion's sake.
    I've never seen that maker before and it looks very clean inside.
    Cap is probably good, but wait for posts from some cap specialists, to be certain, as fakes are good these days.

    Looks like a good original cap to me.

    Cheers, Ade.
