    Hello All,
    I am a new member. I have a tropical Luftwaffe M41 that has been whitewashed with some type of paint. Most likely post-war but not sure. Can you all help verify its authenticity and why would it be painted. Stamp on inside has faded away as you can see the red interior is light pink now. Any help appreciated.
    thanks

    I thought the combined version of the insignia over one triangular patch was a later style, dating it to 1943 onwards. But I'm not an Einheitsfeldmutze Meister. Welcome along and happy collecting.

    Indeed, but I'm thinking it was made 43 onward. Stamps have worn off.

    Maybe, but the whiteoverwash makes me uneasy. It may or not be hiding a multitude of nastiness.

    Not sure how I feel about this one. I usually like them to have the two-piece insignia. something just doesn't seem right. here is a picture of my M41 officers cap for comparison.
