    Default Luftwaffe Officers Schirmmütze by Erel

    Hi Guys, here is another item from my collection from one of the premier Third Reich cap makers, Robert Lubstein or "Erel". This is a private purchase cap of good quality.

    The cap is a large size being a "60" being marked under the sweatband along with the date of "Okt.1943". It has a nice well worn crushed look.



    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Mike, another old thread brought back to life.

    A small tip: note the style of the eagle used. The turned down beak to me is quite distinctive. Erel had an unusual trait on these caps, which might start alarm bells ringing if you are not aware of it, and that is the eagle's stitching will actually come through the caps lining.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Typical Erel Luftwaffe bullion eagle, as you say, unmistakably Erel. I would almost expect it to have a vented cockade as well. Very nice cap.
