    Default Luftwaffe Visor Cap - Opinions please

    Dear Friends,

    I'll be glad to have some opinions about this originality and it's purchase value. The insignias are poor plastic reproductions and the visor cap has a rasonable apparency to me, but I don't know very well the german's visor caps details.

    Thank you.

    One look original cap. Condition looks reasonable, couple of moth nips around the piping? A replacement set of insignia will be fairly easy to find and not expensive. I'd say around $350 for the cap would be about right.

    No problem.

    Can you tell me why you think the insignia is plastic? I don't know of anyone making plastic repro insignia...

    I examinated it and conclude that it's silver gray plastic made with a painted cocar.

    Please, is the G. A. Hoffman manufacturer well know?

    I don't know the visor caps manufacturers.

    Beautiful condition even if they may be fake insignias. I agree about $350 is about right.

    I call the seller and he bringed few minutes ago the cap to me. I removed the eagle for examinations and I'm surprised, I don't know what kind of material is that. It seems to me a very light white metal alloy close similar to the plastic in apparency.
