GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE OFFICERS CRUSHER CAP.

GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE OFFICERS CRUSHER CAP.

The most highly desired of all the Luftwaffe officers caps is the soft pliable version colloquially known amongst collectors as the crusher, these are most commonly found amongst army officers caps but very rarely does a Luftwaffe crusher cap come on to the market. This example has seen considerable wear, it has a good high saddle shape, large size probably size 58, although unmarked. Complete with its untouched set of wire woven eagle and cockade with minor oxidisation and some light threads missing from the left hand wing of the eagle. Standard officers cap cords. Standard nice quality officers material. One nick to the cloth at the crown area, no other moth damage at all. Standard mohair centre band. Silver waffenfarbe in the correct places with minor oxidisation. The leather soft peak has the double edged Luftwaffe version, . On inverting the cap the sweatband is of black leather totally original to the cap. The interior light grey silk lining, which has much age staining. A section of the centre celluloid lozenge is missing, the remains of the silver blocking with the retailer or maker’s mark to the centre of the lozenge. The original owner’s name is applied to a slip of paper ‘Ostenfeld’ with his Luftwaffe number ‘L52516’ in the lower area of the lozenge. A superb piece for a Luftwaffe pilot’s mannequin. Recently purchased from probably the best combat uniform and equipment collection in the United Kingdom comprising Army tropical, Waffen SS, Luftwaffe paratrooper and many other items of the same genre. The collection was begun by the then 15 year old boy who used to visit our own shop in London in the very early 1980’s and has built this collection up over 40 years culminating in the writing of excellent books on these subjects.
