This is a scarce and lovely peaked cap as worn in warmer climes by officers of the Kaiserliches Marine. It is composed of a cream light weight wool twill, lined in a combination of silk and linen, and finished off with a matching calf-skin perforated sweatband. The lovely bullion/metal cap badge, leather chinstrap, and buttons are correct and original to this cap (there was, to my knowledge, no white or tan backed version of the cap badge). Size is small, and the condition is moderately worn with some minor staining, damage and repairs, but nothing to detract from this appealing cap!
Looking for German-made pickelhauben for foreign markets!
