    Review of 2 SS Panzer M-43's

    Have been offered these two. Pretty sure the Dachau M-43 is original, appears so. Second is a white piped Officer's Panzer M-43 (never seen one) with machine bevo insignias and rayon lining. Both have size stamps only. Only have limited photos but will have in hand within next 2 days and will post more pics then. thanks

    Dachau depot cap looks standard to me .

    The other one doesn't really seem to have any age to it, also not seen white piped before ..
    Not an SS cap to start with .....but thats just my opinion .
    Gently retiring from the world of collecting .

      Might have a pair of winners there..I doubt the metal button was factory standard..and I’m thinking it’s insignia are original but not absolutely positive..

          The single button cap I wouldn't touch even with these bad pictures. The Dachau M-43 possibly good, what's up with all these tiny thumbnail pictures when it's just as easy to upload full size pictures

              But it's easier to just to post them as an attached file

                The insignia is fine on the officers M43, but I agree it looks assembled. No gross red flags, just my opinion. The low scallop cut would have been correct for SS and excessive for regular army and it's built like an officers cap, but who knows. A fez just sold with this style enlisted two-piece insignia for less than 450 USD, and this stuff is around as we know.

                The Dachau type looks fine from the pictures posted.
