WAFFEN SS OFFICER OLD STYLE FIELD CAP
The best replica of the Offizierfeldmutze Alterer Art, German crusher cap, on the market and made by Erel of Robert Lubstein the famous Berlin cap factory, carried on by his heirs. From its high quality of production and the materials used it is difficult to say whether it is a replica or a contemporary original, made with the same methodologies and the same models that the company used in the 30s and 40s.
Referred to as old-style officer cap, at first time it has the appearance of the schirmmutze, the visor cap, but to a deeper analysis it differed in various aspects. It hasn't the silver cord, cap has a limp top due to the lack of a rib system. The central band in black cloth there is the metal skull emblem of the SS and in the upper part the eagle of the Waffen SS always in metal. The visor should normally have been in black leather but, being the prerogative of the officers the private purchase of the uniform and therefore the choice to customize the garments to one's taste, this old style cap is with a cellulose visor. Although its use would have to cease with the April 1, 1942, its use was so popular that it continued until the end of the conflict.
The reproduction, in the infantry version of Waffen SS, is made with high quality materials own a military headgear, wool 100%, visor made in cellulose and head ring in natural leather, artificial silk lining.
