Attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres o. Luftwaffe) officers'-pattern side-cap-cocarde (ie. 'Mützenkokarde für Offiziers-Schiffchen') that comes in a minimally used- ie. carefully cap-removed, condition
This is an attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - neatly hand-embroidered example of a WH (Heeres o. Luftwaffe) officers'-pattern side-cap-cocarde (ie. 'Mützenkokarde für Offiziers-Schiffchen') that comes in a minimally used- (ie. carefully cap-removed-), condition. It should be noted that these neat officers'-pattern side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). The piece on offer here is neatly executed in multi-coloured 'braid' and shows a (black-coloured- and/or carton-based) backing (as is more often seen). The piece was once side-cap-attached and shows some minimal dust and/or tarnish, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage only. The quality of the used embroidery is truly stunning: the piece is quite thick and pronounced in execution and can as such easily be graded as a piece of the 'Extra Qualität'. The piece shows a black-coloured- (and or typical 'braid'-based) 'outer-rim' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great - and hard to find! - replacement-item that is ideally fitted to restore any quality officers'-type side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen für Offiziere')!
