    Default DDR Grenztruppen Mütze

    Hello all. What about this DDR Grenztruppen cap? Never seen one earlier with this "GRENZTRUPPEN" band. If it is real then it should be quite rare right? Thanks on forehand

    It looks to be a cuff title , stuck to a officer hat . IMO

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Well this is a first, a DDR cap with a GRENZTRUPPEN unit cuff title stuck to the front instead of the cockade. And 2 pips to hold it in place.
    In the end it is a Horrible wreck of a creation.

    Thanks for your replies. Well it really is an odd hat I agree, I have a friend that was in Berlin only a few years after the wall fell and they sold these caps and other militaria in huge amounts on the streets of Brandenburger Tor, and with this type of style with the band and all. He bought one himself which unfortunaly was stolen with the rest of his collection a time ago. I showed him the picture and he says it was exactly like this. I don't argue aginst you but did they really "false" these caps directly after the wall fell? It's hard to imagine that but you guys have the knowledge and experience I think your'e right. But it could be something to think of.

    Regards Sweguy

    Before the wall fell , East German items were rare and big money . That changed rapidly with the flood of items crossing the old border . The price of East German is picking up now that it's been a few years . I'd take the cuff title off the hat , lower the insignia and that you'd have two items . Plus a couple of pips .

    That is the way to go, from one bad piece to the start of a collection!
