Original German WWII Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery M38 Overseas Wool Cap - Küstenartillerie
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice 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 blue green light canvas lining. This is similar to the army colors, however it features a fine BeVO machine embroidered eagle, with yellow thread on a blue green base, the Kriegsmarine colors. Below this is a BeVO machine embroidered tri-color cockade, which is woven on the same blue green material. There is no size marked inside of the cap, but it seems to be about a size 57cm / US 7.
Condition of this cap is very good, showing very little wear or damage of any kind. There is just a bit of loss of the fuzzy "nap" of the fabric, and a small repairs on the upper rear right exterior. The interior shows no real staining from use or sweat, so this cap looks to have seen very little use in service. The color is retained quite well, and this is definitely a very attractive and colorful overseas cap. Ready to add to your collection!
