Superb, Waffen-SS black-coloured M43-pattern 'Panzer'-cap-trapezoid as executed in 'BeVo'-weave-pattern as was specifically intended for usage on the M43-model field-caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen')
This is an attractive - and nowadays actually truly scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS black-coloured, M43-pattern 'Panzer'-cap-trapezoid (ie. 'Mützentrapez') as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave-pattern as was specifically intended for usage on the (later-war-period) M43-model field-caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen') and that comes in a truly superb- (ie. never worn- ie. 'virtually mint ie. unissued'-), condition. The piece on offer here just shows some truly minimal age ie. staining simply caused by having been stored as such for decades and comes 'as straightly cut-of the role'. The badge was simply never used nor cap-attached: as such it can naturally easily be used for attachement onto a cap (as can be seen on the pictures). The trapezoid (that presumably originated from the so-called Dachau clothing-depots) originates from an insignia-lot that was brought to the USA by an US veteran and that remained there for years in a collection. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this specimen shows the interwoven: 'BeVo-Wuppertal'- makers'-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive Waffen-SS 'Panzer'-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!
