Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of an Imperial German Prussian EM/NCO Visor Cap (Schirmmütze), in the early 20th Century Dunkelblau (Dark Blue) color. The later M1907/1910 version would move to the Feldgrau (Fieldgray) that was seen mostly during the war. The cap constructed of dark blue wool, which was the standard color for all states except for Bavaria, which used their own blue color. It has a black wool band with gold band around the top of the band, which indicate that it was for an Officer with Technical Troops.

The front of the cap bears a Black, White and Red Reichskokarde (Imperial Cockade) on the front of the crown, with a gold and red Cockade on the cap band for the Principality of Lippe. The interior is lined with tan cloth, with a light brown oil cloth sweatband. The top of the cap has a maker logo which is still legible, and we can still see that the maker to be H. DENECKE, though we have not been able to find anything on this maker. Size is a 55 ¼.

Condition is very good, with colors well retained, and just a few areas of moth damage but other than that this cap is one of the best we have seen recently.
