Default Polizei M43 cap for opinions/assistance

I've spied, what looks to me, to be an awesome example of an Officers M43 cap.

But, given that I've only dabbled in this sort of cap once before, and been burned, my expertise doesn't count for much

So, learned chums. Please cast your eyes on this piece of headwear and let me know what you think.

Many thanks

Jamie

Edelweiss is post war..have never seen that style insignia made for officers..it’s not made on police material to match police color..certainly off center when mounted...Billbert

Hey Billbert

Many thanks for the comments.

I've been through the books and searched the web as the insignia was one of the main worries.

I'll let this one slide. Cheers

Also Jamie I'm pretty sure that's a fictitious maker mark and the liner material isn't what I would expect to see on a original cap

You see that material in the sleeve lining of overcoats. The insignia is almost in the fantasy category. A machine sewn officer's insignia yet piping added to the crown (as you would find on an upgraded enlisted cap, an afterthought?). Anyway, not for me.

Good morning all

My thanks and appreciation to you for your assistance. I may have been worrying about the insignia but you've shown me that there is much more wrong with the cap.

Cheers

Jamie

Its fake.

He always makes them with that lining, ive seen a few.

I think this is some amateurish guy as he dont even bother to cut the wool correct , take look a the peak, the others ive seen were just like that too.

Just some friendly advice, Jamie go spend some money on good head gear books, and look at the construction of each cap, then go to some of the pinned threads hear on the fourms It takes years to build up a good working knowledge of head gear, but with patience, and hard study you won't go wrong, and the gents here will always be on hand to help. Good hunting... Regards Paul.
