Kriegsmarine "SAILOR CAP"
Enlisted Cap, with dark blue wool removable top with stick pin type, one piece construction gold eagle with cockade on front, the inside of the cover has black thin linen material with white sewn owners name tag, the name has just about faded away, also has white ink stamp for size, it looks like 55 ½. Band has "KRIEGSMARINE" Cap Talley in gold bevo weave letters. The brown leather sweat band shows some wear with hair oil stains but in very nice sound condition. The inside of the band is made of clear plastic that has turned grey over the years and broken in a few spots, this is not uncommon for WW II Navy head gear, the plastic becomes a little brittle over the years, you see this same type plastic on late war Luftschutz helmets for chinstraps and also on HJ knives for the belt loops. Overall shows minor wartime wear with light age. Would be nice if you could also find the white cover for the cap. Exc. + $1150.00 RARE
