The color of the cap is correct, it is even the one used in the attached photo, the issue is that this photo is faded, but that is the color of both the cap and the jacket.
If you say so. I don't buy it though. Sorry. Are there any photos that depict AH in a blue uniform?

Field grey has different hues.

Which blue uniform? Was he from the Luftwaffe?

Ok, ok, ok, AH wore a green/field gray uniform. Nobody disputes that. The photo of the hat sitting on a table is distinctly that of a BLUE cap. Hence the subsequent Goering comment. You suggest the blue is an artifact of the photo being an old polaroid. Ok, maybe so. Given the clarity of the color of the hats other elements, it sure looks blue. But if you say its not, then, sure, it's not blue.

Maybe the light of the flash into the darkness of the room... the depreciation of the time in the original picture, the scanning of the photo.

The replica is not so replica. :oops:

The second front facing picture I took is a better one.

Otto Günsche handled it too and said it gave him goosebumps. Size 59 I think from memory

This theme wanders into highly dubious "militaria" regions, as well as personal memories that cannot be verified at all.

None of this is proven, and I find all statements written here to be highly dubious.

Please don't start a Sussex-Deutschland war.


Here we can see, once again, that supposed Hitler's caps always differ from the vintage photos...
Although the photo seems colourised, differences can be seen in eagle, wreath, cockade,
and a not as low angle visor as the original.
Chin strap and top gold pipe are different as well.
