I'm afraid mine doesn't quite measure up to these great examples, but here it is anyway. 44 dated. Sorry about the lighting.

Johnny,

Would the female helferin version have the side ear pulls?

Any chance of seeing details of them on that example and could you email or PM me with the RBNr of it.

With regards Bryon (B. N.) Singer
PS Beautiful examples everyone!!!

Lining. Perhaps it is better with the mark obscured.

Nice cap John.
On Friday I saw a M-43 with machine sewn insignia
on "OakleafMilitaria's" table. I went back Sat. morning to buy it and
it had been sold. Anyone know who bought it? What about the two Luft M-43 sitting on the shelf at RelicHunter? Any thoughts?

Thanks.
