Josef "Sepp" Dietrich Schirmmütze Cap
Sepp Dietrich Cap
This is a reproduction, very lightly worn but aged, Schirmmützen cap as worn by Sepp Deitrich who ultimately commanded the 6th Panzer Army during the Battle of the Bulge.
We class this as a 'Reproine' hat, as it is made from reproduction and genuine parts. In this case the woven Heer eagle is a genuine pre-1940 made woven officers eagle in aluminium - as favoured by Sepp Dietrich on his many visor caps. This badge alone cost over £100 GBP! The rest of the cap is very high quality reproduction items.
It is a Waffen Schutzstaffel (Waffen SS), German officers cap, made of top quality material and in the same method and materials as in the originals. In lightly aged condition it is difficult to tell does not date from WW2.
The insignia is museum quality and both eagle and death heads skull insignia show light wear. We have made up this cap to look like one which has been worn by Sepp Deitrich several times.
The leather sweat band is in excellent condition with makers mark (EREL patent Stirnschutz), the celluloid sweat protector has a large makers mark and shows light age colouring.
The gold piping is lightly dirty but still bright looking. The chinstrap has lost its sheen and has aged over time, as has the vulkanfibre peak both on the inside and out, which also suffers from age cracks & marks on both sides.
A genuine Waffen SS Sepp Deitrich Officers cap in this condition will easily go for ten's of thousand's of pounds, which is out of the price range of most average collectors if one ever did come on the market. This one looks the part and is at a snip of a price. To repeat the eagle is 100% genuine WW2 German Officers and the rest of the cap is very high quality reproduction.
