Kriegsmarine, (German Navy), M41Tropical Enlisted Visored Field Cap
1GHH-1. German Navy Tropical M41 field cap, constructed in the traditional style used by all branches of the WW2 German military throughout WW2. The cap is constructed from, fine, tan cotton material with permanently stitched down side and back panels, as well as a sewn top seam running fore and aft. The cap has two, silver/gray, base metal ventilation grommets on each side and a semi-flexible, tan, front visor. The front of the cap has a, machine-woven, gold thread eagle and swastika, that is machine stitched in a triangular fashion; a red, white and black, colors cockade is machine sewn below the eagle and swastika insignia; none of the stitching securing the insignia can be seen on the inside of the cap. The two metal grommets on the right side have a rusted finish; the rust on one of the grommets has transferred onto the exterior fabric, (as seen in the image), not too bad looking; otherwise, the exterior of the cap is in excellent condition. The interior of the cap is lined with a medium green color cotton twill fabric and is marked in white ink, “58 RB-Nr.0/0520/0017 1943.” The backside of one of the grommets on the inside of the cap is about 50% rusted but has not transferred onto the green fabric. The underside of the visor has the same tan fabric as the exterior. The cap was constructed without an interior sweat band. Fabric wrinkled from years of storage. Light signs of soil around the inside edge of the cap, at the forehead area, from very light use. Quite scarce. Excellent. $1500.00 SOLD
DAF Deutsche Arbeitsfront, (German Front), Cap for Werkscharen, (Factory Rally Squads)
1GHH-2. Dark navy blue wool overseas cap bearing a, small, flat, machine-embroidered silver-wire DAF eagle on a black, machine-embroidered, background. The stitched down side panels and top edging of the hat are all piped in light blue rayon cord and there are two, small, silver pebbled buttons on the front, which are maker marked on the backside.. The surface nap on the exterior navy blue wool fabric is, overall, worn from age, use and possibly light insect tracking; although the nap is worn it is not very noticeable at first glance and there are no actual holes in the fabric. The flat silver wire eagle and swastika is intact and in excellent condition; the two silver buttons exhibit extremely light and insignificant signs of surface wear and they are marked on the backside. The blue cord piping shows light and insignificant signs of soil in some spots, (nothing at all detracting). The cord is completely intact and is without worn or frayed spots. The inside is lined with bright blue textured fabric and is lightly stamped, using white ink, “55,” (Hat size). The front, inside, forehead area has a partial, light brown leather sweat band, which is lightly impressed with two words, which are not completely legible; (one word is Deutsches). A large, black & white, N.S.D.A.P., RZM label is machine-sewn on the inside crown; the label bears the RZM and DAF logos and is dated 1934/1935. A very impressive looking hat in just about excellent condition. $395.00
German State Forestry Officer Visor Hat
1GHH-3. Nice quality gray/green wool fabric top; the high front peak is moderately padded on the front crown and part of each side. The dark green cap band has dark green piping on the top and bottom edge of the band. There is no obvious signs of mothing, however very close inspection of the top will show some insignificant moth tracking, (no actual holes), which is difficult to see; the cap band and piping is devoid of any insect activity. The front of the hat displays a, separately applied, handmade silver bullion oak leaf wreath with a metal cockade with a red felt center and black fiber backing. The silver bullion is 99.9% intact with two tiny spots of silver flaking; the silver is bright and there are no signs of corrosion or other deterioration. A silver metal, political style, eagle is affixed above the cockade. The eagle is attached by a metal pin behind each wing; the pin behind the swastika is missing. The eagle exhibits light age and retains approximately 40% of its original silver finish and has toned to a light gray patina, in some spots. A, small, pebbled silver metal button is sewn onto the hat band on each side and attaches the silver bullion chin strap to the hat; the silver paint is missing from the buttons, which have toned to a light gray patina. The silver bullion chinstrap is intact; it exhibits only the slightest signs of age, and it still retains its original silver finish. The top of the black fiber visor exhibits light signs of age in the form of very light crazing lines, which do not present any detraction to the hat. The underside of the visor has a light brown checkered finish. There are no nicks or chips to the outside rim of the visor. The gray/green Rayon interior lining exhibits insignificant signs of soil from light use; the diamond shaped sweat shield is intact and fully machine stitched to the lining. A standard, “Pekuro,” trade name is printed directly onto the back of the sweat shield, using heavy black ink; the logo reads, “Pekuro Stirndruckfrei Deutsches Reichs Patent.” Some of the ink has flaked off the lettering but the words are still quite legible. The original owners name and rank is written on a paper inserted near the bottom of the sweat shield. The writing on the paper is clear but the only word I can decipher is, “Schmidt.” The brown oilcloth sweat band is heavily worn, mostly at the forehead area, and has separated from the hat where the visor ends go under the sweat band. The sweat band has light to near heavy cracks and crazing throughout with one small tear near the back center of the sweat band. The sweat band is still quite sound except in, and near, the forehead area. There are no markings under the sweat band. The orange sponge-like material that provides padding to the forehead is still supple and intact but not attached to the sweatband. The exterior of the hat has a moderately high peak with a shallow saddle, which seems to be the normal shape of State Forestry Officer hats. There is no size marked on the hat but I will guess it’s a 57 or 58. The interior of the hat would rate from fair to Vg+. The exterior is excellent. $650.00

The rabbit fur is in excellent condition; it is soft and plush, and has an even, slightly off white color with white under fur. The interior has a brown / gray rayon lining, which is marked but not completely legible, “Lige Korschner,” (can’t quite make out the city); it’s dated “1943” and “58,” (size). This specimen may have seen some use as the white fur around the interior edge has turned to a light golden yellow, probably from perspiration, nothing damaging or repulsive. No signs of other soil or wear; the interior is in excellent condition. There is no national emblem on the front of the hat and there are no signs of one ever being there; however, there is a, machine-woven, cloth, national colors cockade, hand-sewn, on the front flap, (slightly crude sewing), using black German thread. near excellent. $275.00
WW2 German Luftwaffe Enlisted Mans Gray Wool Overseas Hat
1GHH-8pp. The hat is constructed from, slightly coarse, Luftwaffe blue gray wool, which exhibits moderate signs of age, as well as spots of moderate wear, and or, moth tracking to the surface nap of the exterior wool, which is not completely visible at first glance. The, machine-embroidered, Luftwaffe eagle is hand-sewn on the front of the hat; the eagle exhibits light signs of age and wear and has toned to a slightly off-white color. The cockade is a combination of a fiber backing with a metal circle with a red fabric center; the silver finish on the metal circle is mostly worn to base brass metal from handling and use. The gray, HBT, (herringbone twill), interior lining exhibits light to moderate signs of age and wear, with moderate soil around the inside edge. There is a small, period, hand-sewn repair on the top front of the hat, which is not visible on the outside and somewhat hidden on the inside, (not a serious detraction IMO). There are no visible markings inside the hat; very small size. Nice example. Vg or better. $325.00
