    Looks like an original EAST GERMAN cap to me although i have not handled one for some years so as to value i can only say that about 15/20 years ago they were about 10.00.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    There was a street trader hanging around checkpoint Charlie at the weekend, he had one of these on sale for 40 euros, but i'm not sure of the true value.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks gents, I will keep my eye on it, I was thinking if it stays under 25 pounds then I will hopefully be the winning bidder and hopefully get my
    First DDR cap.

    I think it would be a bit much as I know from experience everything in that area is over priced at tourist rates.

    You are correct on that one, another trader hanging around there wanted 60 euros for a ssh40 helmet, with some haggling i got it for 35.
