Original German WWII Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery M38 Overseas Wool Cap in size 57 - Küstenartillerie

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very goo service used example of a hard to find German WWII Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery overseas cap (Küstenartillerie Schiffchen). The overseas cap, nicknamed in German military slang as Schiffchen, or literally "little ship" as it resembled an up-turned row-boat, was standard issue for the Coastal Artillery.

This example is constructed of a a field gray (feldgrau) wool exterior, with a nice lightweight canvas liner, which is very faintly size stamped 57 on the left side. This is similar to the army colors, however it features a fine BeVO machine embroidered eagle, with yellow thread on a field gray base, the Kriegsmarine colors. Below this is a BeVO machine embroidered tri-color cockade, which is woven on blue green material. Aside from the size marking, there are no markings on the interior that we can see.

Condition of this cap is very good, though there exterior does show some age toning, and wear, which has removed some of the fuzzy "nap" on the fabric. There are also a few small holes, and a bit of light mothing under the flaps, which are protected from the light. The interior definitely shows some staining around the edges, while the top is still the original white color.

Definitely a very attractive and colorful overseas cap. Ready to add to your collection!
