This cap may have original insignia, I can not be certain from the photos, but, I do trust carrlsson1982 regarding his opinion of the insignia as this is his center of gravity. The cap itself is an attempt to deceive. The RZM tag is incorrect, this site is full of examples of originals that could serve as a basis for comparison, and, unfortunately, replication. Many other "tells" as well...textiles, markings, technique of manufacture. If I were a betting man I would wager the paste board is not treated. Steer clear of this one.
