    Hi Mike, this type should not have a air vent grommet. However, it is a modern fake.

    This makers stamp is much favoured by the German firm of "Janke" who make fake caps. Be wary of any cap with this mark.

    I have shown my original on the forum in the past. But here it is again. Note in particular the construction of the crown seams. This is a well used example.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    I did research this for about 2 hours today and thought the price was way too low. boy this looks good but as you have shown no SOUTAGE. Should this hat always have a SOUTAGE?

    These caps sell at around 2,500/$3750.

    They originally were issued with a Soutach, but later issues had no soutach.

    Cheers, Ade.

    K H Flauder was an original maker of overseas caps, but the firma Michael Janke has made fake stamps to mark their reproductions.

    Illustrated is an original K H Flauder overseas cap for Luftwaffe forces.
