    Default Waffen SS winter hat - rabbit fur cap

    Hello all,

    Got this one out of an Estate and wanted to share it here. Insignia pins do not poke through the interior liner system.

    Anyone now who the maker of the eagle is? I believe the skull is an Assman product?

    The ink stamp looks like a Russian movie prop stamp, which is not necessarily a bad sign. Plenty of items went into the USSR movie prop stocks and plenty was sold in the early 90's as well. The rest i will not comment on as i am sure others will chime in

    Cheers

    I thought it was a faded RBNr stamp?

    Maybe it is, maybe not. Can't read it. I have more than one item here with Russian "prop" stamps. WH, SS, NKVD and so forth. The items was all good. I think i might have some NKVD trousers with such a stamp if needed

    The cap itself looks fine, but without any provenance it will be hard to 100% authenticate this, because the insignia could have been added during the war, post war, or by another collector. Do you have a picture of behind the insignia this will help to tell how long the insignia has been on the hat

    this is behind the insignia, they do not go into the liner system. Would that suggest placed on the cap prior to the cap being finished and the liner sewn in?

    The eagle seems to be a original late war Assmann with three prongs, the skull is a reproduction of a Assmann.
    Kind Regards,

    Judging from these pictures , the skull is definitely a reproduction ( from the 300 / 400 series ) , the eagle could indeed be a good latewar Assmann - a combination that would have been cheap in the 1980's , as were issue fur caps ..
