    Default Kriegsmarine coastal overseas cap

    What are your opinions on this one guys......stitching etc.

    This item is French made, do collectors prefer German made, or is this acceptable.

    I have only German made ones in my collection, but need one of these to finish a cabinet.

    Also, has anyone dealt with Jensens relics?

    Thanks a million

    the French manufactured quite large quantities of KM uniforms and insignia during the war and this looks typical of such.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    The cap looks to be a fine period original. Jerry is correct as to much KM material being manufactured in France. My first blue KM hat I got in 1957 for $3.00 was made in Paris. In the 70's, fakers were transforming these green caps in to Waffen SS caps. Those were in the days that loose insignia was available and inexpensive.
