Original German Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery Einheitsmütze Wool Field Cap

Regular price $995.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a nice example of Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery M43 Einheitsmütze field-cap. The M43 Einheitsmütze (Unit Cap) is a variety of "Ski Cap" and was based on the Bergmütze (Mountain Hat) used by Austrian and German Gebirgsjäger (Mountain Troops) during WWI. Germany had adopted it in 1915, and after the war it spread throughout the military.

The skirt that surrounds the cap is made in the same wool as the cap, and can be folded down over the ears, though this was rarely done outside of the Mountain troops, which had a double-thickness skirt. The skirt has a small dip in the front quarter with a divide secured by two small pebbled buttons in order to get the skirt around the bill. The small section in the front quarter was built shorter to show the insignia, and cover the wearer's chin or mouth, without disturbing breathing by covering the nose. There were also later M43 caps, such as those used by the DAK, that omitted the skirt entirely, as it had little use in the desert heat.

This example is very nice in used condition. The cap is constructed of blue/grey wool and has minor nips and damage. It does have some light staining. The visor is still in good condition, without any bends or breaks. There is an excellent factory applied machine stitched heavily embroidered trapezoid yellow eagle and black white and red cockade.

Offered in slightly salty but very solid condition, this cap is approximately size 55 and a hard to find  Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery M-43 cap.
