Wink Help - crusher waffen ss - help

Hello WAF community;
I come to you today for opinions on an extremely rare cap.
I saw it this weekend at the SOS; it's from a local Louisville dealer.
Initial feedback from people who have one is very positive.
But the opinion of WAF, in addition, would be a plus.
What do you think of this Crusher Waffen SS?
Thank you in advance for your time and help.
Best regards.

Crushers coming up like mushrooms after rain..

I'm not convinced.

Here are some more that will be available soon..
99.99% sure these are bad also
I'm leaving the 0.01% for a miracle to happen

Thank you for your answer.
I agree with you, given the publicity you're showing, it's hardly possible.
But I'd rather take my chances with this Crusher...
She was the only one during the show who looked right...

Thank you for your answer.
Difficult to say, and from memory it strongly resembled a standard Waffen SS cap interior.

That in itself doesn't bother me at all, but there are several things about this cap that I do not like. I do like the badges, though.

The insignia on the hat could be original.
