Like the Heer, the Panzer Beret, or Panzerschutzmutze, began to fall out of frontline use after 1940.
The latest use of these which I have seen in a photo was in 1943 when the new Hohenstaufen Division was in training. I was quite surprised to see these in use, even in training at such a late date.

The other piece of evidence to the 1943 images is this entry or entries in the Waffen SS price list from early 1942.....
