Original German WWII Luftwaffe EM-NCO 56cm M38 Overseas Wool Cap Dated 1942 - Schiffchen
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of a German WWII Luftwaffe M38 Overseas cap (Schiffchen), as worn by Enlisted men and NCOs (EM-NCO). 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 Lufwaffe for most occasions.
The cap is constructed of a blue gray wool exterior, and features a fine embroidered eagle and tri-color cockade sewn to the front. It features a faded blue cotton lining that is maker stamped and dated:
To the right of this the lining is size stamped 56.
Condition of this cap is very good, though it unfortunately has suffered minor moth damage to the nap of the wool outer portion, as shown. The color is retained quite well, with the expected fading and discoloration from age and use. Ready to add to your collection!
