Field gray wool M43 cap with a trapezoid machine woven insignia on the front of the cap. The insignia was originally machine sewn to the cap but it obviously came loose at points while being worn and was reinforced with a few hand applied stitches. The cap is fully lined with a gray green rayon that has some staining from use. The cap shows expected signs of wear in the field and there are some small holes in the wool on the underside of the fabric, but overall the cap is in good used condition and exudes a lot of character.
