Interesting, unless my eyes are deceiving me it appears to be a 1940/50s period green beret that's had its original liner removed and replaced with a new one containing fake stamps. One to avoid for sure.

What concerns me here is the different Sizing of the Year's Stamp.
While the 19 is slim, the 44 has wide Numbers.

Both badge and beret are fake.

marking I have a doubt
but the beret is the badge look good

if the badge is false, it must be specified why
and show an authentic one to compare
to say it's wrong it's not enough
moreover we can see the trace of the badge on the beret it does not date from yesterday

the band is faux leather from 1950's/60's, the maker did not make berets in WWII, the badge is an obvious fake, with dustbin lid feet on the lugs and it is hollow back which I am sure is wrong, and if popskipa said it is wrong you can take that to the bank

funny when people with probably little experience on the subject ask for opinions then can't accept that their -I assume probably bargain- buy is bogus.

Especially in the 1980#s/90's we had several UK Dealers on German Shows with
Loads of Fake Badges, mostly from Special Units.
One day I bought about 100 LRDG Badges, all sold as Originals, but for a very small Price, Funny, especially as I sold them a day later to the Security Guys there who used them because of the Scorpion for their Security Outfit.
Another Dealer, then gave me the Adress of the Paki Maker who also made these Dagger Badges in a good, but not perfect Style.
As said before, you can trust the People here when they say it's fake, at least I do. Maybe because of the long time "knowing" them and their knowledge.

Mostly correct.
Compton did make berets in WW2 but only ARP, CD and a small contract of black berets in 1945 as far as I'm aware. The looped stitching on the inside is not found on genuine wartime berets, but only on berets from the fifties and onwards.

This thread is a good reminder of why I hardly post here or on other forums anymore. You are asked for an opinion and when it doesn't tally with what the OP wants to hear they get grumpy and don't even have the courtesy to thank those that provided input. I'll know not to bother next time

It's funny how some People react when you try to help, or "educate" them.
Right after the Reunification of Germany I had a guy, telling me my original US Army Green Caps are fakes, because as a Border Guard he had to check the US Army and so he knows the Labels are fake. He was glued to his opinon, most interesting as the Americans were controlled by the Russians only.
Same with an Egyptian Dealer on the Flea Market. Because somebody told him, my Stuff, what came directly from Army Storages, was fake.
I got reminded on this here, other opinions aren't welcome, what somebody who maybe want's to confirm, for whatever reason knows is the truth, even if it's not the case.

Not in to British stuff, but the ink stamp is obviously fake, hasn't aged at all in comparison to the green wool, Sorry you go ripped off but this beret is JUNK!!!!
