Waffen-SS Artillery Officer Visor Hat

Article about: Well, to make a long story short, a friend introduced me to someone who had some German war souvenirs. I traded for everything he had, to include the following hat. It is very worn and used

    Hi Bob H.,

    Can it be that the black velvet band is applied in a later time? I personally don’t like that the velvet band shows any borders on the lower back of the borders. The velvet band fit’s in general not very well in my opinion.

    The scull is also a bit tricky, clear water damage and far gone (if it is found into the earth), very hard to judge for me. Can be original but I simply can't say. What I can see is that the insignia have suffer much more that the very fragile velvet band what give me also a bad feeling if it is not put together.

    I'm the last who want to spoil the fun, because I like a lot of things other collecters don't like, but I have seen better caps burned down in the past.

    Valid points but I'm sure Bob has checked this hat out from top to bottom.

    Couldn't it be an imperial German ww1 cap with later applied SS insignia?!? I had one similar cap, with a blue cap-band (for veterinarian) very similar in construction and colours (except having a blue band). They also existed with black velvet band, for Artillerie, Pioniere and Verkehrstruppen officer's:

    Model 1910 Sachsen (Saxon) Officer's Schirmmütze

    I do not want to be pessimistic, but you should check that possibility, too.

    That is the good point, as the construction of the inside of cap looks like a early too. Probably was reissued by SSman? OK, that is just my shared toughts
