Default Panzer Division Hermann Göring Cap

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has any photos or caps similar to the one shown in the photo attached. Is this an ss hat with a luftwaffe eagle or a luftwaffe issued black cap with a totenkopf? Any information appreciated. Thanks!

The white wool piping would match his wrapper piping/collar tabs quite well,a fashion conscious soldier.

I have seen this photo before but I would not want you to think this was commonly done, likely a very limited practice.

Of course there is that possibility, ha ha! I was simply wondering if these could possibly be a luftwaffe trial run or someone putting luftwaffe insignia on an ss hat. I suppose if the latter, there wouldn't be much incentive to fake but if the former I guess we'll be seeing these pop up! Thanks!
