    Default Two "new" overseas caps to my collection - one German, and one ???

    Hi,

    I have just bought these two overseas caps.
    The man I got these from have had them both in 45 years - I know him well.

    What do you think of them?
    And does anyone have an idea to where the black one comes from?

    What is the correct price for these?

    Regards

    I think the red is French. Not sure, it's old.

    Hello,

    Could you take a clear flat shot of the insignia on the Heer officer? It looks like an embroidered roundle but flatwire eagle. I am not a hat expert by any means but I like the look of it so far. I would love to see some shots of the grommets too.

    The Black overseas hat looks to be Belgian to me. See how much I know?!?

    Top looks to be a M38 Signal Officers mütze. The bottom one i have not much idea about. I looks like a Imperial Russian insignia. I have seen some much like that one on Imperial belt buckles.

    Regards, Lars

    Here is more pictures - grommets and eagle.

    What can you tell from them?
    And what about the eagle?
    ...the head of the eagle is present - bent towards back of the eagle.

    Hello replace,

    I like the looks of the grommets both from the inside and the outside. I like the officer piping, base material of the hat and the lining. I cannot tell about the eagle. It is very worn. Is it machine applied? Can we get a picture of all of the insignia? Maybe just the roundle and then all together. I would also like to see where the Soutouche goes into the hat from the inside of the fold. I am not a hat guy but I like what I see so far!!

    Hi,

    Again - here is more pictures:-)

    Pictures of insignia and soutouche.

    Bought both as original - very fair price!

    Has been told that the black one could be "legion etrangere"?
    ...but again, also Belgian gendarmerie.
