    Default Luftwaffe general's visor hat

    I would share that cap which my friend recieved in the trade offer and ask me about my opinion. IMO that is a fake one.
    Take a look at a curved seams, and remaining of basted thread inside of the seam, ( or that is a fastening of the lining stitched trough the cap, which is wrong ) Also wrong proper direction of the top cloth line. The hand re-attached top to the base, and at least the sweatband fully hand attached ( looks like repaired) and well worn, while the cap itself inside is very good.
    Yeah, and at least all the white threads is glowing in UV
    Seams is also very very rough and a cloth in that places is very fat, even the white wool is a fine cloth and original, but looks like it used from other item like tunic etc

    Dimas, your suspicions are correct--it is a Frankenstein, and a crude one at that. The wreath is textbook Janke, and the sweatband was lifted from a real Schellenberg and crudely re-attached. Piping is sloppy. White LW Generals are almost as rare as SS white-toppers.
