    Default Luftwaffe or/nco Flieger Mutze

    Hi folks,Picked up this Luftwaffe Flieger Mutze today, Looks genuine to me, Light to moderate wear no glow at all under U.V. owners name penned inside (i'll take this with a pinch of salt) no sign of a manufacturers stamp. Adler has a black or very dark blue back ground that appears to have been machined on before the lining was assembled to the cap. I believe that i read else where on the forum that the badges on these Mutzen are generally hand stitched mmmmm, as always i look forward to your valued opinions gentlemen .Cheers Paul

    Hi paulscoot,

    I just wonder why this cap was sewn together with white yarn - yarn tends to bleach, but this yarn is white even at the inside of the cap if my eyes don't betray me. I'm no specialist for insignia but I can't think of a reason why the eagle should have been machine sewn on with a white yarn when the base of it is almost black (which is quite unusual in itself, as you mentioned). I am looking forward, as always, to the specialists' opinion, hoping for you that they have a better opinion of the cap than me.

    Stranger things happened during wartime conditions ,thank you for your reply if it isn't right somebody has certainly gone to a lot of effort to repro a common mutzen mmmmm! cheers Paul

    Cap itself could be OK, but that eagle is really an issue, IMHO. These caps are very plentiful, and inexpensive, so I would wait for an "no questions" example.

    The cap itself looks like one that may have been made in one of the occupied countries, but I agree with BobS, a nice textbook example isn't too hard to source.
