    Default Schirmmütze for an Offizier der Artillerie

    Hi guys,

    Here is yet another cap that I am looking at purchasing. I like this one. It looks like a well-made private purchase cap to me. But you are the experts... Can I please get your opinions?

    Thanks,
    Mo

    I like it. I think it might be an early cap? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Cheers, Pat

    Very nice, the ribbon through the sweatband is an especially pleasing feature.

    Hi Mo

    Interesting cap. have you been able to handle it ar or you just going on the photographs ?

    The exterior screams Erel made cap as it has the high shape at the front and the give away vented cockade. the interior tells us that the cap was supplied via a distributor but the sweatband is one i've not seen before on an erel. Could be a replacement maybe ? If you can handle the cap get some shots of the grommit on the front cap band and the sweatband to see if it is marked as an erel made cap.

    failing that buy the one I have for sale its a beauty and an arty at that !!!!

    Joking apart looks good if the price is right.

    cheers

    It's not an eReL despite the vented kokarde, this maker, A. Loescher used a very distinctive and very well made stirndruckfrei system. Notice that 3/4 of the height of the sweatband is the usual leather but then you have another piece sewn onto it with such precision it's hard to see the join in photos. Outstanding workmanship on behalf of the sweatband manufacturer.

    My pleasure, it's funny because I have a terrible day to day memory Chris, lol, but I remember details of all the caps I've seen over the years.

    Thanks for your help, gentlemen. Before, I was under the impression that only Erel used a vented cockarde.
