    Just as an FYI, what makes it bad? I know it doesn't show an RZM stamp. Should it have a button infront rather than the embroidered Totemkamph?

    The cut/shape of the hat is wrong for ss. The insignia would not be paired together on the same hat. Look closley in the ref books.

    TOTENKOPF is the word you need to look up in ref books.

    Hi and welcome to the forum!

    Please add any files as jpeg images, as people will be able to see them much easier. I have saved the pics and added them here in my post for ease of viewing and comment.

    OK, where to start! This cap, as already stated is a poor fake.

    Incorrect cut of the cap.
    Incorrect insignia used.
    Incorrect markings. Any cap with "SS-BW" in it must be viewed with the greatest suspicion.
    Incorrect date: caps of this pattern were not even made in 1944.

    Cheers, Ade.
