    Default Fencing cap

    Hello,
    Was just going thru some stuff and remembered I have this fencing cap(?). I know i have inquired about it quite a while ago, but don't know on which forum. In any case, I have what is I believe a cap for one of the german student fencing societies and wonder if I can get some further info and also, in this type of shape, not the best, is this of any value to a collector? It's not something in my collecting area at all just happened to get it along with a helmet I think. There is writing on the inside of the cap which has the name Hans Wibel I think and AR! or RV!. Also some other date and word strassbourg.
    thanks for any help or info.

    Hi

    It's a patriotic themed students cap by the look of things, and from the manufacturing style probably pre 1918 IMO.

    Nice cap for those that collect but not one you can retire on..........hope that helps.

    cheers

    Hello,
    Thank you both for your replies and info. Didn't realize that it might be of pre 1918 manufacture, thanks for that info. Regarding value, a ball park figure? 10 bucks, 50 bucks? As mentioned it's not something I collect so any info is appreciated.
    thanks again,
