I agree, I have never seen that type of piping "connection" on any Erel.
This is one of those late-late war LVA visor that are unmarked on the lining, of which I have had a few, but never like this.
Late-war sloppy craftsmanship, that is for sure.
If the cap band is joined at the back rather than the front then this is a red flag for me. Also the fact it may be going the rounds speaks volumes.
Agree its the poorest made Erel I have ever seen.............maybe Mr Lubstein didn't make it ?
Just an opinion.
