Bavarian M16 Enlisted Cap Cockade

Post by Chip Minx » Tue May 26, 2015 3:00 pm

I'm looking for a Bavarian enlisted/NCO prong backed cockade of the 1916 pattern with the larger blue center. I have a 1918 dated Bavarian Einheitsmütze, that had this cockade, which popped off the cap when the solder gave out. I'm not sure if it can be reattached without damaging the paint on the front. Anyway, if anyone has one of this pattern that they would be willing to sell or trade to me, I would appreciate hearing about it.

Thanks

Finally found one and restored my Bavarian Einheitsfeldmütze, whose original one had popped off if it's prongs. Now, I'm happy to show it again. Not an easy cap to find.
