Yes, just lovely. Someone might want to offer Erwin a book that gives him a clue.

Thanks Paul for putting these pics up for me, looks like it is not as good as I thought.
Anyrate that is okay as the whole idea was to gauge peoples opinions.

Hats are not my strong point but occasionally I get lucky.

A good reference book will save you money and grief in the long run. And, of course, vetting it here before purchase isn't a bad idea either. Sorry you had to eat this pie.

Any member can now, with the changes made a few months ago, post photos via the WAF Attachment process.

A very poor fake.

In addition to some nice Krätzchen which have been posted here, this thread helped me learn about these (as my interest in these only spans about a year);

It is a repro. The GWM Kammersburg stamp stands for Great War Militaria of Chambersburg Pennsylvania. At least they had the decency to mark their products.
