This cap is available and I"m considering purchasing it. My concern is that these were produced and worn well into Weimar Republic and early TR days, and this one lacks marks and the visor material looks a bit late for me. At €270 it's on the high end if it is real. Will try to negotiate but want to make sure it's actually Imperial first.

Hello, doesnt matter, the cap looks good but some details dont fit well ,the sweatband appears to be of waxed cloth a cheap material but the cloth of the upper part of the cap looks as good quality .. not the red cloth of the band. en fin as the French says ,much care with the cap

I don't have more photos of the cap unfortunately; it's available for €260 from a seller in Ireland. As it seems there are red flags I'll pass on it. I collect on a very limited budget and literally can't afford to be burned.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
