A very good example of a Waffen SS M43 model field cap for an officer. This is a scarce example with the single button front which is not seen so often as the double button type, silver piping to crown used only on the officers model and complete with SS eagle to the side of the cap and the SS skull to the front, the hat is produced in the light weight field gray material often referred to as Italian material as large quantity's were obtained by the German military after the occupation of Italy in 1943 and many SS M43 caps were produced from this captured stock.The interior of the hat features artificial silk lining showing light sweat staining but the hat is in very nice condition with no moth or damage.It is not size marked but it is a good large example probably about a 58.
