    I agree; from my perspective at least, a $600-800 cap in today's market. Some will believe an HPC cap should command a premium, but I'm not one of them.
    Artillery and infantry are the most common waffenfarben, and prices generally reflect that.
    A very nice cap.

    I think a cap like this should command a premium versus a generic issued cap. The quality is far superior and it has the vent system. As for how much? That is up to the buyer and seller to work out
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I would not characterize officer quality private purchase items as "issue quality". Certainly, HPC caps are high quality, but are the clearly superior to Erel, Pekuro, Clemens Wagner, Paul Kaps, etc.? I suppose desirabilty is in the eye of the beholder.
    Should this cap carry a premium? Perhaps a modest one, IMHO, but how many average collectors would pay it?

    I think I paid roughly the same for my spanky Erel example so i'd say you did well. Not a bargain but certainly fair IMO.
