Question SS Allgemeine Officier VisorCap

Good morning to all

I would like to have your thought on that A-SS visorcap ....

Could it according to you be good by any chance ? The insignas ? the sweat band ? the fabric ??? The labels and stamps number inside the visor ?? The sewing ? The cloth ???

It looks like a textbook piece but there is nothing I can not put the finger on … I might be wrong though … Any opinion most welcome, here is the beast:

Hi,

I have seen a high end fake EM cap with this maker stamp A.1-104 made in the exact same way like in your cap.

I do not like this hat.

Best
M.

this is what i feared that it would be a very well done fake ....

It looks like a textbook one but there is something i feel uncomfortable with ....

same thought ... never saw that maker number on the label ... Don't like the sweat band ... The RZM markers look too sharp ... the inside color of the visor ... looks too new ... Dunno ...

Insignia are authentic but the cap itself would not be for me.

Here's a senior leader's cap that also looks to be a high end fake.
