    What happened to the visor on the bottom right photo?
    Some creature or creatures got to it....not one of mine, thank God, though I have nightmares about such things. The cap was found in North America and sold in the UK to a noted dealer.
    These things are mortal, as are we.....
    damit, basta.

ID:	261161This cap is much more interesting than much of what one sees on the hum drum militaria site, you know.

    The cap I added here is from East Germany, the NVA established in 1956 with the field grey uniform. The Bw did not wear a cap of this kind.

    Of course, the lack of lower piping which I didn't notice.

    You're right, exceptionally rare cap. I've never seen one before without NVA on the shield.

    I was just in Dresden at the new military museum and saw nothing like this field cap. It is a very attractive and subtle piece. They have a lot of NVA material on display, as the Dresden site was the military museum of the GDR in former times, to include a lot of Reichswehr material as well.

    These early NVA caps are highly collectible and interesting in their own right and have somewhat more interest than this over done SS stuff, which is coming from a very overdone and foetid SS collector.....
    damit, basta.

    I couldn't agree more. I patrol ebay.de quite often and there is usualy one or two NVA and Bundeswehr hats of the earlier period that make for interesting study and should be more collectable than they currently are.

    Never, ever seen an NVA cap with a maker marked shield before now though.

ID:	261593I knautsch'ed this image from the nutty job website that shows the army field cap worn by an officer ca. 1918 in all its glory.
    damit, basta.
