Authentication Needed: Kriegsmarine Cap


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have collected a few German things over the years, but only Heer. I am interested in getting a Kriegsmarine Cap to do a Battle of the Atlantic display. I am wondering if this cap is authentic? It is available for $550 CAD and is from a reputable dealer. It is a salty cap but I like the look of it. Thank you in advance for any help rendered.

Take a look to the sweatband and inner stuff and lining . all fits more or less well with a real cap but,Why someone had torn out the central portion of the lining ? just were normally the manufacturer name was carried .

I don't think someone has taken it out, it is just not in the best condition. It is a salty cap all around. Probably caused by natural wear.
