Opinions needed on Scharnhorst cap tally
I bought this cap tally 15 - 20 years ago. I have no history other than when I bought it. It was bought from a collectors / junk shop which I use to visit regulary at the time. The owner use to put WW2 stuff which came in behind the counter for me and offer me first refusal. The cap tally came into the shop with some original WW2 Royal Navy items which had been found in the sellers loft (They had found a cap and batteldress blouse, unfortunately they cut the shoulder boards off the blouse as it had moth damage and threw it away!! I bought the cap and shoulder boards along with some WW2 books and pamphlets which came with them, the cap tally was amongst them).
I am aware that not many survived the sinking of the Scharnhorst so have always been unsure of its authenticity.
I have attached some close up photos which should hopefully provide an answer from those in the know!
