    Can you help me with this strange KM officer visor cap? It's a not removable cover one.

    I have doubts on the following parts:

    - the chinstrap is not usual!!!

    - the black cap band is not usual!!!

    - the lining is brown!!!

    - the chinstrap buttons seem to be french ones!!!








    Is it a french made one or a fake one?

    Very strange cap.

    The peak is badly fitted, there should be no gap between the end of the braid scallops and the body of the cap.

    The chinstrap is definitely not a Kriegsmarine one. I have seen exactly the same chinstrap and buttons on a fake KM Admirals cap.

    The black band is not the correct mohair type. The band on this cap is identical to that used on many postwar West German caps.

    Of course caps made outside of Germany, in occupied countries, might not always use the correct materials, but for sure this is not a regulation German made KM officers cap.
