EM/NCO or Officer schirmmutze

Article about: Got this in a lot to an officer, KIA on the eastern front 26.09.1941. Would it be possible to tell if it's an EM/NCO cap, or officer? Chin cord + buttons are missing. Thanks for any input.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    It is a nice private purchase cap. Most likely an Officer's cap, if you got it in a group of items.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the welcome and reply, Ade!

    Came with an NCO waffenrock, M27 Reichsheer service tunic, diary and officer chin cord.
    Was told it was an NCO cap, but didn't look that way to me.

    It could be. The thing is Enlisted men and NCO's could buy any quality cap they wanted. All up to how much they wanted to spend. You could display it with either tunic.

    I agree with Ade, could be either.
    Hat is definitely private-purchase, and was made by Schellenberg.
    Are there any "Gepruft" stamps under the sweatband?

    Thanks for info about the maker, Stonemint.
    No "Gepruft" stamp anywhere on the cap. Waffenrock is private purchase, no staps in that one either.
