GERMAN WWII WAFFEN SS BLACK PANZER ENLISTED MANS OVERSEAS CAP.
A very rare piece of Third Reich headdress being the overseas cap for an Waffen SS Panzer man. Although not size stamped we estimate size 55. The all black material cap in the classic boat shaped form, nap of cloth excellent underneath the side curtains, nap thin to the exposed sections of the cap. The late war construction with rayon introduced into the wool mix is obvious. The cap is complete with its totally original Waffen SS Bevo skull and eagle. Some of the stitching on the upper edge of the boat shaped curtain has rotted, as is quite common with these late war pieces of headdress. To the interior the cap is lined in what was originally black lightweight cotton twill that has faded and brightened through wear use. Considerable wear around the inner forehead area. This item just purchased by Regimentals from a collection, which is over 50 years old.
