Original WWII German Heer M34 Overseas Schiffchen Side Cap - Dated 1941

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The Wehrmacht version introduced in 1934 was of field-grey cloth with a turn up all round, the upper edge of the turn-up being "scooped" at the front. On the front of the crown there is a small version of the eagle and swas badge, in white on dark green. On the front of the turn-up is a roundel or cockade in (from the center out) red, white and black. This is woven on a dark green diamond-shaped backing. Early in the war an inverted-V (^) of Waffenfarbe, or arm-of-service piping was sewn to the turn-up, enclosing the diamond, and butting to its upper edges; the lower "legs" of the "V" extended down to the bottom edge of the cap.
