    Default Coastal Artillery ???

    Hello This cap was in a collection I purchased a few years ago. It is a little interesting because it has been enlarged from a 54 to a 56. It is double marked 54 and 56 with no other markings. The yellow eagle makes me think it is a Coastal Artillery cap but did they use this type cap? Thanks for any opinion.

    Yes, Marine Artillery, there is plenty of photographic evidence for this Army style cap being worn by MA personnel prior to the more common cap in the Luftwaffe style cut.
