    WW1 Bosnian Fez would appear plausible, although I cannot comment on the item's authenticity.

    The crowned shield with the armored arm holding a scimitar is the Austro-Hungarian era coat-of-arms for Bosnia-Hercegovina, which provided the inspiration for Handschar's collar patch devices.

    For color renditions of this coat-of-arms, see, for example:

    File:Coat of arms of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1878
    Datei:Wappen Bosnien-Herzegowina.png

    In any case, this Fez has nothing to do with the Handschar Division.

    Still:

    Do you know if there is any way to tell if it is real?

    Sorry, but no; like I said, I cannot comment on that.
