SS Panzer Feldmutze: Authentic or Fake???
Hi all! Once again, I have an opportunity to purchase what appears to be a nice cap, but I'm questioning a couple things about it and need some help from the experts. I want to see if your opinions agree with mine... I'm just going to keep my opinions secret for now and see if everyone agrees
If you need more photos let me know. I've requested a shot of the side, top and a more detailed shot of the Eagle since it's folded in this shot.

Hi Dzyner, no more pics needed. It is a fake.
Note the bogus stamps, incorrectly applied soutach, wrong cut of the cap, incorrect use of air vent grommets, etc....

Ok, this confirms my suspicion. I didn't go as far as analyzing the stamps or grommets, but right off the bat I noticed the incorrect soutach (untucked, not a 90 degree angle, etc). I just purchased a TON of reference books and they're already coming in handy.
