You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Hitler Youth Winter Service Cap! This was brought back by a US Veteran, however I do not have any further history.
Issued specifically to the Hitlery Youth, this style of Service Cap was originally developed in 1937, and was very similar is design to the Bergmütze Ski cap worn by Army Personnel.
Made of black blue wool/rayon fabric, this Service Cap remains in VERY NICE used condition! It features a visor with fold-down side panels, with a tan/brown rayon liner. The front of the cap features a machine embroidered HJ Cloth Diamond that has been hand-stitched. Some wear and marks as you can see in the photos, and the original plastic brim is cracked internally (does not detract). Nonetheless a VERY NICE example for any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.
