Have I got a dud?!

Article about: The grey cap with the runics is a very rare item, seldom seen. The fakes, however, are legion. Any grey SS cap is rare; any SS cap black or grey is also rare. You have more images of real on

    Default Have I got a dud?!

    I just took possession of an SS Visor but not sure if it's legit or not. The insignia look a little off but the inside markings (what's left of them seek ok...).

    Can anyone give me their thoughts? Thanks.

    Welcome to the Forum. As warbuff mentioned, better pictures are required for a legitimate opinion. Look at any hat thread either here or on the cloth headgear forum and you will see what is required.

    What is happening with the fabric surrounding the Eagle and Deaths Head emblem. Strange looking.

    While I do not specialize in cap badges, the original images included here disqualify themselves in terms of quality, and this fact alone more or less damns the cap insignia in the process.

    The voice of authority. Basta.

    And the cap is likely a variation of the Baltic stinker adhering to the Polish theme.

    Sorry.

    No offense meant to our Poles, Balts, and so forth.

    The issue is the fake caps that do or do not originate there.
    damit, basta.
