    Default A dubious Imperial cap for review

    This one is currently on ebay.de. Schirmmütze eines Husarenoffiziers.

    I thought it might be a good example to test everyone's skills. Ignore that it's Imperial or meant to be Imperial, a hat is a hat and alarm bells should be ringing in the heads of you guys who think you know a thing or two about Schirmmuetzen.

    I would darf to say that ;the visor as been added, and looks a older type of visor.
    On the other hand, especialy the sight view ...it looks nice!

    Pleats are flapping in the wind, open holes in the visor. At best a screwed with Verein piece. Ben, do you have a link to the ebay auction?

    I think others had the same doubts because the bidding didn't go very high.

    An interesting one Ben.

    The shape for me is wrong certainly for an Imperial cap. The construction leads me to think it may be a 1930's made "repro" at the best and worst a total hash up.

    I agree with the lining construction coments by Stonemint, they would make some nice curtains with the spare material.

    Rare cap, minty condition sold on e bay.............caveat emptor.

    Apart from the fibre peak and the lining is it common to see the sweat band with two individual seams

    I agree, it is a 1930's piece for a veteran of Husaren-Regt. König Humbert von Italien (1.Kurhessisches) Nr.13 (Diedenhofen) XVI Armee Korps. I personally like these verein pieces. Too bad it was mucked with.

    I beleive this is another 1930's "replica".

    Ben

    I reckon this one is even later than 1930...............maybe by another 80 years !

    The interior looks brand new........oh, maybe it is ?

    cheers
