An Unexciting Schirmmütze

Article about: Most people do not care for Beamte, as they were administrative officials, ie, paper pushers. But what can I say, i never was one to go with the flow when it comes to hats.

    It's a nice cap. Nice shape, nice quality and in as good condition as you're likely to find, who cares what colour the piping is!

    May I add to the thread with a pekuro. It is minty as well and also looks unexciting.......

    Spandau, you may, and it is a beauty! Top of the line by Pekuro with the doeskin and the bullion--these Beamten cared about (and for) their hats......

    PS--the "Big 3" of hatmakers are now covered in this thread!

    In case any of you are interested, Weitze has a mint unissued pre-war Beamte CW on his site right now for 1500 Euros. This has the earlier logo; the 1/2 fold-over/ 1/2 sewn sweatband; no stirndruckfrei; and a doeskin wool body. Note the peak is lower than my wartime example:

    Note that the pre-war shade for Beamte by CW was more of an emerald color, similar to Erel's. During the war, it became the regulation badge-cloth colot:

    Very interesting visual essay. I sold my Lubstein Beamter cap for far too little money. I actually had two, one of which had the foil tag still in it.....all for too little treasure and all to Shea......
    damit, basta.

    here's my erel with vented ciockade for good measure.

    Again notice the "lighter" green piping ...on a good day in sunlight could even claim it was a jager cap.

    cheers
