German Army M34 Feldmutze 1940 Dated
A very good and really rather interesting example of a German Army M34 Field Cap (Feldmutze), dated 1940 and manufactured as a size 60 but resized at the factory or depot to a size 55. Both stamping remain inside the cap with clear evidence of the reduction in size.
As part of the procedure the Soutache has been removed and the openings closed.
Overall condition is very good with all the nap remaining to the coarse field grey wool, the cap itself perhaps never having been issued.
The insignia are machine stitch applied as the cap left the factory with the machine embroidered eagle sitting above the rosette.
A very nice and unusual cap.
