I have not been on this site for a long time.  Nothing to show til now.  I seem to have lost touch on how to post photos.  Hope this test works.  Thx.

Sorry about the rookie mistakes.  I have uploaded some images below the accepted size but do not seem to find how to attach.  Any hints would be appreciated.

Re: Officer DAK M41

OK.  Fully reading directions help.

I have been offered this cap from an older collector.  He states that he got it from Manion's many years ago.
It looks good to me but I am far from an expert on them.  Any opinion help from the experts here would be appreciated.  Thx.
More photos to follow.....if I'm doing anything right.

Re: Officer DAK M41

Hope my photos are good enough.  I understand this maker is often faked.  Not good to hear.

Re: Officer DAK M41

From the photos I'd say its one of the fakes sad, typical repo with bad liner, insignia, and eylets

Re: Officer DAK M41

I see from older discussions that the Willy Sprengpfeil maker never made DAK officer caps.  Is that the consensus among knowledgeable collectors?

Re: Officer DAK M41

To date, there not been an original tropical Officer M40 cap seen by this WW2 German cap maker, hence that theory
Willy Sprengpfeil did make EM tropical caps
