    Me again, by the way this cap as well as the blue one are said to be original WWII issue and not fakes. They are up for around AU$1,300 to $1,400 each so a bit cheaper than usual. Please feel free to say whether you think they are rubbish or not. If they are i will not buy them

    Hi Tom, the real problem with KM caps are that fakers use post war West German Bundesmarine caps and convert them with the addition of wartime insignia.

    I don't like the look of the shiney peak on the white one. This looks synthetic?

    I think to be sure about the blue one, people will need to see the inside.

    I cannot really help on these, as KM is not my subject.

    Cheer, Ade.

    Hi Tom.....remove the white top. There should be a type of cheesecloth as shown below.
    Also the stiffener should be celluloid not pasteboard

    Hi Pantherv,
    Thanks for your reply.By looking at your cap i am begining to think the other one is a BW type.Not sure about the blue top but the white one does not appear to have a cheese cloth cover under the white top Although the cap is only NCO there is doubt whether the peak is made from the correct material which is not good either.

    Nice cap.Thankyou one again

    Also on yours it appears that the visor might have been upgraded to a more senior officer too.Hope that is correct as it appears that way in the pics
