This “Other Ranks” cap is produced in Luftwaffe blue/grey wool which has some minor discoloration and wear from use. There is some minor tracking as well. The best way I can describe this cap is as a “bloated Overseas Cap”. It has the standard Overseas Cap configuration, but is heavily padded for Winter warmth. The front peak has a machine embroidered Luftwaffe eagle and a separate cockade. Each has been hand applied to the cap. The interior is fully lined in quilted black wool. There is a “sweatband” produced in ribbed grey cloth. The top of the interior has a hand applied, white cloth tag which reads “Almi” Koblenz, with the date of production listed as ’42 and the size as 57. Near excellent and very desirable!
