    Taking a stab at this as I'm learning, but appears to be fake, an a bad one at that.

    Pigeon head on the eagle. Eye sockets on the skull are too small. Wreath and talons look incorrect. Overall bad details throughout...

    Again, I'm still learning so go easy on me if I'm way off...

    It is fake as already stated. The back is the big giveaway here, being totally incorrect in the weave pattern. Some good ones have been shown on the froum in the past.

    It is for the so called "M43 cap". But this is really a horrible post war collector term. Much better to use the correct native and wartime German designation of the "Einheitsfeldmutze".

    Cheers, Ade.
