Again, the roman numeral I indicates Erste Garnitur, or best wear for walking out, etc. Each piece of issued clothing and such was rated as to its level of wear, and these roman numerals went to IV or V, I cannot recall. The more worn, then the lower down the order of dress such an item would go.
Many of these caps survived more or less unused, and were had by me for all of 25 dollars in the year 1970.
The unit was part of the rapid expansion of the army with the reintroduction of conscription as part of the breaking of Versailles in the year 1935. Verden is in Lower Saxony.
