GERMAN WWII SS OFFICERS OVERSEAS CAP.
An exceedingly rare dove grey canvas-like material boat shaped Waffen SS officers overseas cap. Silver waffenfarbe around the side scallops which in places has slightly oxidised. Fitted with an enlisted ranks SS cap eagle and a metallic skull. The lower areas of the cap have sweat staining surrounding the complete base and on pulling back the side scallops there is a distinct colour change where the side scallop has protected the main body from sunrays. The cap was originally the classic dove grey colour, which we have encountered many times with SS headdress. To the interior it is devoid of any markings and is lined in a lightweight black silk.
