Artillery Cap made by HPC
Description: High quality, top end private purchase Service cap for an Artillery NCO/other ranks. Made by the firm HPC (Herman Potthoff) this cap has the crown made from a doeskin material with a lovely saddle shape and sports this firms unique "frischluft" system of a 5 vents cockade with an inside flap to enable the air vent to be closed if required.
The cap is in very good condition throughout, just a couple of moth nips and some tracking on the crown alongside some sweat staining inside, as shown on the photos. The leather sweatband has a velvet insert between the band and crown for a better fit plus a perforated pattern on the front. The celluloid is intact with the firms logo in red printed underneath. HPC caps are hard to find.
