    Not sure this type is tropical, rather mid to late war economy type, but one looker original whatever it is. Some think the brown backed type is not Heer, but probably just maker variations between the green and brown backed examples.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Hi Carlson I happen to own the same style of trap in my Collection and ran it here for opinions and it was as well deemed a mid to late war piece not a tropical but as Jerry has stated a variation of the cloth that was used .
    I purchased mine for a restoration project on a M-43 feldmutze here are a couple of images of my example for comparison.

    The first time I seen one of these traps I as well thought them to be a tropical variation the eagles are a little odd looking it would appear that someone dropped them on there heads when they were a chick and squished there necks
