    Default Authenticity of SS M43

    Need help on whether this cap is authentic or not. My biggest concern is the air hole. It only has one on each side, which I understand that some had in the later months of the war. Sorry the pictures are so bad (I didn't take 'em. Some old lady did...) I might be posting more clear pictures of the patch. Bottom line, did any M43 caps have air holes?

    I'm thinking this might be a possible Dachau cap???
    I found a picture of someone's true Dachau patch on this forum, (posted below) and it looks quite similar...
    Also is a picture of an M43 with a hole?
    Any help would be great

    Hi Mabrgo,
    this cap is crap...pardon the pun!Opinions apart comparing the patch on the cap you've posted to the other one is like comparing a banana to an apple!
    Cheers
    Manny
    P.S.;"Dachau ...E41"?Steer clear from the sucker and from its vendor!

    I must agree with Manny.

    The cap in the original photo is a Bergmutze and not a Einheitsfeldmutze, hence the air vent.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry guys... can't post the pic or I would show you. It is a Waffen SS Dachau trap (not Panzer black) and I wanted to know if it was the real deal. Came from an estate sale.
