I couldn't have said it better Tony - precisely why I like them. 🙂Oh what beautiful things those are! Nicely done Jeff. I’ve always felt Schirmmützen are under-collected (if that makes sense?) You get the same cloth, colours, and piping of a uniform in an easily displayed Mütze. Plus they make a colourful and attractive display. You clearly have an eye for condition.
