An "Extra" quality cap for a German Army infantry officer, manufactured by the firm of Erel. The cap has a fine saddle shape. Constructed of quality field gray wool with dark green cap band and leather visor, the cap is piped in white for the infantry branch. The exterior of the cap shows some moth tracking. The interior shows wear and use. The full celluloid sweatshield is broken but remains present in the cap. Beneath the broken sweatshield is the worn maker mark of Erel with the "Sonderklasse" and "Extra" designation. A nice looking, field worn, officer cap by one of the most prestigious cap makers.
