    Hi guys,
    The interior band of this cap matchs other WWII styles i have seen on other websites.I hope this could be a good sign it may be real but still sounds too cheap.May go for some more photos

    I think the blue cap is probably okay, though I would like to have it in hand.

    It is not the best swastika, I will say - these are generally sharp.

    And from the picture, the chinstrap seems in much better shape than the reinforcing trim around the visor.

    At $1,400 (was that the price?) it is probably a decent value.

    As I have mentioned before, KM is not my forte.

    But to add to what Bruce has mentioned about the cap eagle and the swastika in particular. Badly exucuted swastikas are not generally a good sign. But I will offer this one from my collection. It came from a Canadian veteran and as you can see it is what our US cousins would term "salty" (ie. Well used)

    Cheers, Ade.

    You know, there is still something bothering me about the blue cap.

    Tom, could you provide a close-up of the visor braid and the leather brim reinforcement, please.
