Original tailor made mid to late war WW2 German Army General's M43 peaked field cap (Wehrmacht Heer M43 Feldmütze für Generalen) in grey green rough wool. Double button front, with BeVo style trapezoid form officer's eagle and cockade (eagle embroidered in silver thread) on a grey green fabric background.
Cap has no obvious external damage. The internal half sweatband is a little damaged (see photographs) and originally this cap had a sweat shield in the crown, but this has been removed. Damage is not visible when it is displayed. Cap exhibits minor signs of wear. Medium size - but it is not marked. Internal diameter is about 55 cm. This would equate to European size 55, UK size 6 3/4 or US size 6 7/8. Has an internal half sweatband in light brown leather.
Well manufactured, with a single stitched golden brown brushed cotton interior lining. Gilt metal buttons and gold crown piping to denote a general. Interior shows some signs of wear. Some sweat stains inside.
A rare item, in very good condition.
