Army Afrikakorps Field Cap- Desirable model 41 cap in outstanding condition. This is a later production piece, as evident by the tropical eagle, which is machine applied in a trapezoid fashion to the front of the cap. The diamond shaped tropical cockade is nicely hand applied, and original to the piece. The body is made of the textbook olive green canvas type material and has the requisite double set of grommets on each side. The size 54 red cloth lining is lightly stamped with the size and an RBnr number, which I cannot read. It is also date stamped, and this looks to be 1944, which puts it into the Mediterranean theatre. Cap has a full oil cloth sweatband and shows very light wear. Excellent condition overall.
