    Default Kriegsmarine Bordmütze

    This is a Kriegsmarine sidecap that I traded a beaded feather fan to a Native American veteran for in the 70's. There was something sewn next to the swordfish at one time but I do not know what. I started to pull out the threads and then decided not to, other than one thread to do a burn test with. It is cotten. The makers stamp inside is very faint from wear. The only part I can make out is the size 57 next to the stamp.

    From what I have read the swordfish emblem was popular with U-boat crews?

    Some of them liked to sew on the metal Jaeger edelweiss as well, the spacing of the stitching looks about right for that.

    Now that you say that, the stiches stand out like a sore thumb. Thanks that has been a mystery to me for years.
