I posted this in "Real or what?" and haven't got any responses. Can anyone tell me if this is original or an older fake?

Consensus is it's a fake, possibly an older Hollywood prop.

I agree with the consensus that this cap is indeed a fake. Back in the late 70s/early 80s a large number of original WWII zeltbahns became available on the market.
The "repro artist dealers" were taking these and having caps and uniforms made out of them. Some were selling these as fakes to the re-enactors while a few others
tried to pass them as period originals. The cap shown is better than most I have seen and it appears a tropical M41 was used as a "go-by."

Thanks Mike! That would make sense, something made only 30-40 years ago would still have enough age on it to feel convincing.
