Scarce, German Late-Weimar Period Army Infantry Officer “Old Sty- What an interesting offering we have for you here! This is a late Weimar period cap with a true “teller” form. It is produced in top quality doeskin wool in a field grey hue. There is some moderate tracking to the top panel and scattered moth nips throughout, none of which are bigger than a pencil tip. The white piping has minor discoloration and is otherwise in good condition. This is a crusher-type cap, and the top folds down over the dark green badge cloth centerband when at rest. There is a stylized, white badge cloth wreath with white twist rope “veins” over a dark green badge cloth backing. There is a nickel/silver finished metal cockade with a red felt bull’s eye; this is the “flatter” type typical to early caps. There never was an eagle on this cap! There is, however, a heavily toned bullion Officer-type double chincord held in place by two small silver finished pebbled metal buttons. You can see where it has rested on the black leather visor for years, as it has left an indentation. The visor remains tightly affixed to the cap. The interior is fully lined in gold rayon that is excellent. There is a diamond shaped moisture shield, which has a maker motto and the “Sonderklasse” script. There is a tan leather, perforated sweatband that is excellent as well. The cap is a size 56. A scarce and desirable pre-Third Reich mütze!
