    were there any original leather caps like this_
    I do believe there may have been - just not officially issued by the military / political organizations of the Reich .
    Remember that this style ( " Bergmütze " ) was a popular civilian cap too , long before the war .
    It is entirely possible that one of these in leather found its way into service - but it will then not have an issue tag ( let alone a fantasy tag as shown here ) , and I know of no period pictures yet ..

    This thread reminded me of a hat that a friend(?) recently sent me from the Ukraine...I have never yet decided if it was a well-meaning but horrible thing or an insult, but I never mentioned it to them. I have no idea why they sent me this, though, but I couldn't very well just throw it in the trash(it's actual Leather, so it could not have been Too cheap....although it Looked cheap..). I decided to modify it abit and so, I stripped off the thin cardboard-like strap and dangling tin buttons and the plastic red star on the front, and these bits Did find themselves in the bin. Next, I hunted around in some odds and ends and junk boxes in the basement and came up with a WWII US Navy officer's hat Sterling silver eagle that was missing it's crossed anchors and installed it in the star's former position. And, voila! I now had an almost wearable cap!

    But not by whipping, for they might just enjoy that.
