    Default LW M43 Cap for review

    Hello everyone,
    So for my first authentication I'd like to post this M43 Luftwaffe Cap.
    Actually it's supposed to be a gift for my friend's birthday as he's a LW collector.
    I chose it from one of the dealers so hopefully it's okay but would like to hear your opinions on this one.
    It's a version with trapezoid insignia, maybe someone can identify this maker from the code?

    Looking forward to getting your reviews

    Best regards,

    I can't say anything to the cap itself as this is not my special field. For Reichsbetriebsnummern see here:

    The Reichsbetriebsnummer RB numbering system.

    If authentic (and if I read the number correctly as 0629) this would mean a maker of Koblenz. So next thing to do would be to look for period addressbooks of Koblenz and check out which M├╝tzenmacher/M├╝tzenfabriken there were. I just did, could be Almi the factory, Geord Dodt a cap maker, or Friedrich Schweitzer - or perhaps even another one not mentioned in the adressbook.

    Cap is a good one, and the insignia looks to be period applied too.
