    Ewan I'm going to put it under a black light when batteries are charged and see if this reveals anything. I know its one of many tests but hey! haven't done it on this cap before.

    Good evening Gang. Ok i put it under a black light and even the cloth label did not glow. Just a small pointer, which ok its still a good sighn but not gospel. PHEW.

    If there is a spare thread hanging somewhere try a burn test on it. If it burns to ash and does not melt then it's a good chance of being period thread. Modern thread has plastics in it that melt into a ball when burned. I personally don't see any issues with the cap, but I'm not a headgear collector so I have not studied the subject in depth.

    Gefolgschaft hello to you. Ok my mate done what you said but only on the light brawn material not the badge thread or the stitching which holds the insignia on. It burns so quick and goes to a ash.

    Always best to get as much information as possible if you are not sure about an item Dave. There will always be naysayers for this cap because it's a little different from the standard caps that are often seen. If you've done the UV, and burn test, and it passes and it seems right in hand than keep it.
