Saxon M1917 EM Schirmmütze

At least 'M1917' is how it was described by the seller... Personally, I'm having a hard time telling what's what after the M1910 (feldgrau+colored band & piping+black visor) and M1915 (same as M1910 except for the green visor)...

According to seller: "In 1917 the visor cap was modified by discontinuing the branch of service color centerbands
and replacing them with a less visible green centerband for all branches of service but both
versions of the caps were worn concurrently."

Actually, it's the Einheits (Universal) Mützen that I'm having difficulty 'locating' on the 'Model Chart' as some call it the 'M1916' which wouldn't make sense with the M1917 as described above...

Anyway, I don't have the cap with me yet to take proper photos but I couldn't wait sharing the available shots with you guys :) It came with a tag with the original U.S. vet's name who captured it and brought it home in
