    The lining is of the type found in the more evolved fakes, piping appears crude in the photos, although, better than many other attempts, and the tag is not correct. They still get the tags wrong, however, the cap is getting closer...but I would be curious to see it in person. I will leave the insignia to those with a greater depth of subject knowledge.

    Contrast the following...

    Dr CMH is a wise analyst. The tag is surely a stinker. The badges on the cap look authentic, but I cannot wholly say.
    This is an obnoxious object, if indeed as fake as my colleague suggests. The thing needs to be examined in real life.
    Can I find a sweat band like the one here somewhere, please? I have need of good spares.
    damit, basta.

    The education I've gotten here has served me well as I believed the tag was bad too. So not quite "textbook" as the seller describes it.

    The post 1936 enlisted black SS peaked cap is particularly liable to very well executed fakes.

    These fakes are directly a result of two thing: a.) this kind of cap is plentiful enough that the fakers can reverse engineer a real one and b.) we have so expertly analyzed them on line that

    the fakers are free to correct their work to harm the most persons.

    Witzig, nicht wahr?

    Please be very careful here....Mr. Pascal has given us a clue to the problems here....but I do not want to point them all out, because that
    means a better fake in 2016 and 2017 and misery for the innocent. Pascal's bottom picture is the correct one....
    damit, basta.
