1942 Dated Luftwaffe EM/NCO Padded Winter Overseas Cap
The cap is constructed of the standard Luftwaffe blue-gray wool, which shows a bit of slight fading in the areas not covered by the side flaps. The cap was constructed in the style of the standard Luftwaffe overseas cap, but heavily padded for wear in a winter climate. The front peak carries a machine embroidered Luftwaffe eagle and a separate cockade, both hand sewn to the cap. The interior is fully lined in heavy black wool with a separate sweatband in ribbed gray cloth. The top of the interior has a cloth manufacturer tag which bears the designation of “Almi” Koblenz, with the date of production stated as 1942 and a stated size of 56. The cap is without stains or holes and it is in overall excellent condition.
