Article about: I love this piece! I thought I would bring this thread back to the top and see if there is any update to see if the cap has surfaced or is lost to time.

    Quote by Friedrich-Berthold View Post
    The beret was apparently used in garrison wear well beyond 1941, at least if the photos in the French picture book on Division Hohenstaufen are to be believed. The key with this image of this chap with what surely are SS Pz beret insignia on the field cap is to look at his comrades, all of whom seem to have sort of cobbled together headwear, some of which I would wager was made behind the lines in something other than the Lubstein firm or August Mueller or retailed in the SS Kleiderkasse.

    An interesting image, and one of many from the years 1942 and 1943 that show Panzermaenner der Waffen SS (...und des Heeres). More interesting than the headwear are the marks of war on these mens' faces, which are far more powerful and persuasive to me than anything else.
    All of this regalia likely got blown to bits and or thrown away a couple of years later. Or went with the cast off equipment into a bog somewhere.
    Ben VK had a very attractive field cap of some note a while back.

    A US collector also acquired one recently or in the past two years and posted it on another site. It had conventional insignia.
    damit, basta.

    I think most collectors of SS hats would aspire to owning, one day, the Alter Art Feldmutze with the wool covered schirm. I can't say for certain if this example on the left has a beret or arm eagle but it's a wonderful image none the less.
