Superb - and truly used ie. cap-removed! - Waffen-SS field-grey-coloured, M43-pattern cap-trapezoid as was intended for usage on the M43-model field-caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen') that comes in an overall very nice condition
This is an attractive - truly used ie. carefully cap-removed and nowadays actually very scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS field-grey-coloured, so-called: M43-pattern cap-trapezoid (ie. 'Mützentrapez') as was executed in 'BeVo'-weave pattern as was specifically intended for usage on the M43-model field-caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen') and that comes in an overall very nice- and just moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. The piece on offer here just shows some truly minimal age ie. staining simply caused by having been minimally used: it was carefully cap-removed and still does show some stitching-remains- ie. holes with which it was once cap-attached (as can be noticed on the pictures). The badge was carefully confectioned ie. 'trimmed': as such it can naturally easily be used for attachement onto a cap (as can be seen on the pictures). The trapezoid originates from an insignia-lot that was brought to the USA by an US-veteran and that remained there for years in a collection. Simply a very attractive Waffen-SS cap-trapezoid that can easily be used to restore a cap or to be stored in any cloth-insignia ie. Waffen-SS collection and that is accordingly priced!
