    I second my UK colleague. Look on Shea's site for a real example, as well as on Whamond's site.

    Yes, that is a fake. Nothing original, the liner's cloth the SS Panzer Trapezoid, the black wool and cut, similar, but not as must be

    I lifted these images from the Shea site. This is an authentic cap of the so called Dachau hoard from the Bekleidungslager. I had one in 1971 which I got for very little money, I should think maybe fifty bucks or so. I sold it a couple of years later for somewhat more. La di da. They were not very impressive caps in their time, and I do not find them so now, but I cannot account for public taste. Suum cuique.

    Thanks for your replies, the current owner wants GBP150 for it. He'll be waiting a long time.

    The BeVo attached eagle was never seen by me with that kind of caps , I mean "Dachau" type caps with that kind of visor ( presstoff inside). I have seen about 6 of them and all of them was with mashine embroidered eagle.

    The illustration I have added in post 6 from the Shea site clearly shows this insignia mentioned by my Baltic friend.

    I wish I had kept the one I owned in 1972, had I known how popular they would be four decades later. Shucks.

    More recently I owned three of these things attached here and I traded them all off to a well known dealer...
