    Default Imperial schirmmutze or copy ?

    I had this for a while,I thought it might be good but I have doubts, the marking is "Kostumfundus" does this mean fancy dress or is it something to do with costume hire? the lining is quite poor but the cockades do not look the best.Could it be a genuine cap that was used in the post war period ? I would appreciate any comments or opinions.
    Best Regards,

    Looks like a genuine infantry Officers dunkelblau (pre-1910) cap to me, albeit interior is in not so good condition, looks to have repairs, alterations etc.... typical for a theatre costume department piece. Still collectable, if a good price.
    Prost ! Steve.

    $40 was a steal sir ! both the Reichs cockade and Prussian cockade look to be original, I have the same cap, I got mine years ago for about $60 it too has a fragile interior ! here she is.....
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hi

    Nice original cap. Pre 1915 Infantry officers cap.

    Gentlemen,Thanks for the help and opinions, I really like these and I am inclined to start collecting some examples of caps and helmets from the ww1 era and pre WW1.
