    No. It is definitively post-war cap with fake "1939" stamp. This side cap was manufactured by "Państwowe Zakłady Przemysłu Odzieżowego w Bydgoszczy Oddział C" in early 50's. The manufacture did not exist before war. Hope to clarify you doubts.

    This is 100% post war production. The 1939 stamp is fake.

    Most pre-war stamps I've seen have always been done in red ink.

    The cap looks like those used by the building units of the army used in the early post war period.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    No problem Tony. I'd also like thank everyone that posted in the thread, wouldn't of known about the maker and the stamps if it weren't for them

    Hello,

    I would like to say that I always thank everyone for their replies in advance, unfortunately I missed off the thank you by mistake this time in my haste.

    I think that one of the most telling signs was the fake date of 1939 was outside the box meaning that it could easily be stamped later, a pre-war officer's garrison furażerka I saw once had the date inside the box and the colour of the ink was red.

    With our combined experience we continue to expose the fakes and post-war militaria, I contribute my small bit, as I am only a beginner, but learning fast thanks to your experience.

    The trouble is not only do some early post war Polish uniforms look simular, but some people are actually putting fake dates (which is only one of the many crafty tricks, I have heard about) on post war militaria to try to convince you that it was made in the pre-war years.

    ...but you still haven't said 'thank you' to those that have replied.

    Even though you stated in your post that you meant to but in your haste forgot, its not too late to do so...

    As always, an enormous thank you to all the members who replied to all my Polish militaria identification questions, giving invaluable help and making extremely interesting points.

    I know how long it takes to identify and research pre-war Polish militaria, as I spend most of my time trying to do it.

    It is made much harder by only partial reference materials, but this is improving all the time thanks to the mainly Polish collectors/curators/historians/writers who write more detailed and updated books.

    Also, to those who create internet websites and use forums.

    The joy of seeing original examples and buying them or admiring the others members examples, makes the disappointments and sometimes extremely long waits worthwhile.

    It is always at its most interesting when I see an item which is either not recorded in known reference or is an extremely rare example which is very rarely seen, or an exceptionally well preserved example.
