Luftwaffe M43 Einheitsfeldmütze. Un-issued?

    Hello,
    Here we obviously have two Einheitsfliegermützen produced by the same maker the same year, that have two different styles of cockade, sewn with two different methods of sewing...if we consider that in the link provided, the cockade has been sewn during the construction process of the cap, as it is machine sewn...what to think about the other one ?

    So for me, the maker has changed his production process sometime in 1944 or the handsewn cockade is a replacement...(maybe also they first hand applied cockades at the end of the construction and changed for machine applied cockades in order to accelerate the production...!?)

    If we talk about tropical M40 caps, we know that knowing how each maker did apply both insignia is a clue to determine if they have a chance to be factory applied or not...

    Just wondering...
    Thanks
    Thats a good observation. From the ones I've seen, there seems to be a good mix of both machine applied and hand applied

    Hello again,
    Were all these caps produced by the same maker (seen in this thread) ?
    Thanks

    Here are a few more examples from some popular dealer sites. All dated 1944, all in excellent condition, with slightly different insignia

    Hello again,
    that's a nice range of caps, but i do have some difficulties to believe that the same maker has used so many type of insignia sewing at the same time...

    Two piece insignia with hand sewn eagle and hand sewn BeVo cockade
    Two piece insignia with hand sewn eagle and machine sewn Bevo cockade
    Two piece insignia with hand sewn eagle and hand sewn embroidered cockade
    Hand sewn embroidered trapezoid....

    or this maker was a huge firm that had many workshops, each of them having its own way to apply insignia...!?
    Thanks

    Thats a good theory. Maybe they did farm out some of their work to smaller firms
