This high quality cap, produced by eReL, has the look and feel of a crusher as the owner removed the stiffening wire. Its a great look! The body is excellent quality doe skin wool which has minor discoloration and wear but no damage. The top panel and at the upper and lower edges of the dark green badge cloth center band (multiple minor nips and tracking) are piped in red indicating artillery (Flak) personnel. There is a handsome nickel silver eagle which is appropriate but a replacement to this cap. The wreath is a beautiful officer type in bullion and the cockade is nickel silver plated with a red felt bulls eye. Both the leather chinstrap and visor show signs of heat exposure with crazing and wrinkling. Each remains supple enough and still look ok and remains firmly attached. The interior is fully lined in gold rayon that is very clean. There is a rhomboid shaped moisture shield that is fully intact. The maker info has washed away but we know it is an eRel based on the embossed stamp on the light brown leather sweatband. There is minor discoloration to the sweatband but other than that it is in great condition remaining soft and supple. The cap is a fairly large size 59. Desirable and priced to move!
