    In memory of my father who was in K-Einsatz, combat engagement, with the RAD in the Alps in 1945, of my grandfather who was with the IR 87 during campaign in France in 1940 and of my grand-uncle who served in the Gardegrenadierregiment Nr. 3 "Königin Elisabeth" and who was killed in action at Craonne, Chemin des Dames in France in 1917

    It certainly has the look of a well used field cap.
    I love the field repairs on it.

    Looks like an original to me that's suffered some mice damage or?from storage. I don't see any field repairs. Looks like an unissued cap. This variation is the most common
