Straight from the woodwork in German. This cap belonged to a German Chaplain and was in a collection for over 30 years, the collector got this from the veteran himself and married him and his wife! Very rare and not often encountered M42 overseas cap. This model was only produced for one year (1942) and therefor these caps are quite hard to find, since many were converted with a bill later in the war to look like a M43. This cap is also factory made for an officer with a silver tresse machine applied on the top border of the cap. On the front period hand applied army officer flatwire insignia are present and well sunk into the cloth. Silk lining show minimal wear and shows a size stamp ’58’, made by L. Ritgen. Desirable and rare army field cap!
