    Default Waffen SS M40 Feldmütze neu art

    Hi Guys, this is another favourite item from my collection. Once again just how I like to see an item, used and worn from wear in the field.



    The white soutach is for Infantry.

    Some points to note when looking for an original. Note the heavy "piped" seams to the top of the cap and the slightly "puffy" appearance to the insignia due to the way they are applied to the cap. Slight bit of damage to the eagles head from wear. Also note the wool used. German wool was reworked "shoddy" even at this stage of the war. It had a high content of old wool reused in the weave. Look closely at the pic of the cloth: see how there are multiple colours and rough bits in the mixture.

    Any Ink markings to the interior have washed away. The size of the cap is small, about a 55 or 56.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Some times I've seen both Coastal artillery being used as SS cap, and SS with coastal artillery insignia- but all of them was originated from Estonia. Probably due of bad supply?
    Your is nice cap, I like it!

    Important details of how the soutach was applied and the seams.

    Also shown is the back of the cap.

    My pleasure guys.

    I have owned this cap for about 18 years now. A good investment for the £250 I paid for it back then.

    Cheers, Ade.
