Black velvet band, no lower piping on the band, can't get it into his head that Heer bands were dark green wool, not black velvet. What do we reckon? Post war put together? Completely post-war east or west german cap with badges applied? Has the piping been removed, or was it never there? Looks to be a very dark colour, almost like the Bundeswehr ones.

A photo of the label inside wouldn't be a miss if he was trying to show how authentic this thing is...

No label, just a rayon blue liner with the stitching where the label was.

I think its more likely to be post war police/BGS type cap.

That was my thinking John. I did suggest that, but he's adamant it's all original. He's a trader though, so he would be ;)

The stitched leather edged peak is found on luftwaffe and KA caps and some Dutch made SS caps.The piping on this one is not right and a bit 'bright'.I found out on WAF that the Berlin Police wore a cap which is almost the same as a Luftwaffe officers cap and is very often passed off as such,but I think Dave's description is spot on! :lol:
