    Default Possible Purchase Luftwaffe Flak NCO Schirmmütze

    A local dealer is offering a Luftwaffe Flak nco/ enlisted visor hat for sale for $350.00 and this is their description: "Visor has a 1st pattern aluminum "droop-tail" eagle. The red crown and capband waffenfarbe means a Flak unit. The upper wool body is free of mothing and stains. The interior lacks the sweatband. Inside has one little tear and one placed is stitched." I know the pictures are bad, i am trying to get some more. From what i have at hand, what do you guys think? Anything i should look out for? The lack of a sweatband kind of bring up some red flags for me.. I am still a noob and havent collected/posted much since i got back from Basic training and AIT.

    Thank you in advanced for the advice/info!

    He has it on Ebay for $450.. Either way, w/o the sweatband, I would not bother.

    Oh wow, i didnt even know it was on ebay! I found it on my local craigslist lol. Thank you for the link, i am surprised ebay hasnt taken it down yet. What would be a good price to offer without a sweatband, given its an original.

    It doesn't look like a droop tailed eagle from the photo.

    That is not an early drooptail eagle!This dealer needs to see a eye doctor.This is a fairly common piece and to have the sweatband missing you can find much better out there IMO.Damaged piece at $450,not!

    I also would avoid a common cap such as this without the sweatband. Your resale options will be quite limited. You may end up paying $ 500-600 for a no questions good example, but likely much happier in the long run, IMHO.
