    Default Is this field cap a good one ?

    Hi

    A bit out of my usual sphere of interest with this one.
    The cap has a strange inside with half lined crown and some kind of cloth sweatband ?

    Could anyone put an opinion as to it's originality.

    cheers for any help

    Tony

    Tony...never seen one like that before..it exhibits all the right construction methods & proportions, perhaps the sweatband was added after manufacture.....the lining looks period, what is the stamp ? Although there is a prescribed pattern of manufacture, I am sure there will be deviations such as this...so I am going to say IMO its an original..
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hello
    Just saw this its not often we get to see the workings of a mütze may explain why sometimes we see a blue tint on a red band particularly with flash photography on some feldmützen.
