You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Wehrmacht Heer Tropical EM/NCO M38 Tropelfeldmutze Overseas Cap!
This style overseas cap was originally developed in 1933 by the German Air Sports Association (the civilian forerunner of the Luftwaffe), and was adopted by the Luftwaffe shortly after its official establishment on February 26, 1935. Officer’s ranks were distinguished by piping on the crown of the cap with silver piping for the ranks of Leutnant to Oberst and gilt piping for General Officer’s ranks of Generalmajor to Reichsmarschall while EM/NCO’s caps were not piped.
Made of Tan rayon fabric, this Tropical overseas cap remains in VERY NICE used condition! It features back panels with gently sloping, downward scallops to the front and forward sides. The front center of the cap has a machine embroidered national eagle in pale silvery/grey threads mounted on a tan fabric backing. The front features a machine-embroidered, padded, national tri-color cockade. The interior of the cap is fully lined in red rayon, and features both the manufacture and date and size info. Some slight wear due to the age, but otherwise EXCELLENT! Some holes and wear, due to the age. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!!
