Default opinions please WWII German Field Cap

The lining is ink-stamped with barely visible markings denoting size “58”, date “1945” and manufacturing/issue code which appears to be “H 8A M0”.
Is 250 out of line for this??

I suggest you look for a less controversial example.

great tip, thank you, but I still need to know what is the ballpark value of this type of cloth hat assuming it was original?

An original in good condition might run $1000.00 +.

IMO a good one but better pics are required to have the right decision .
The price never make something original or not ...
If it's 250 USD it's a bargain . Why not ?
Fortunately good deals are still existing and i experienced it once again on the german Show in Kassel this week !

Look at those perfect edges and cut.
