Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of an Imperial German Prussian EM/NCO Visor Cap (Schirmmütze), in the early 20th Century Dunkelblau (Dark Blue) color. The later M1907/1910 version would move to the Feldgrau (Fieldgray) that was seen mostly during the war. The cap constructed of dark blue wool, which was the standard color for all states except for Bavaria, which used their own blue color. It has Ponceaurot (poppy red) wool band and piping, which indicate that it was for an infantry soldier.
The front of the cap bears a Black, White and Red Reichskokarde (Imperial Cockade) on the front of the crown, with a Black and White Cockade on the cap band for the Kingdom of Prussia. The interior is lined with tan oil cloth, with a light brown oil cloth sweatband. The top of the cap has a maker logo which has worn away, but we can still see that the maker was Heinrich Siebert, though we have not been able to find anything on this maker. Size is approximately a US 7 (56cm).
Condition is very good, with colors well retained, and just a few areas of moth damage. There is hole on the top of the cap, which has a straight line in the nap that runs right towards it. Possibly something dripped on the cap at some point. It does look almost like it could be damage…
