Waffen SS Crusher Cap Infantry / Cavalry / Reconnaissance
This cap has been made to replicate one worn by the Waffen SS Ground Troops, Cavalry or reconnaissance units. The waffenfarbe is either aged white or aged faded yellow, it is difficult to tell which it is and we did this on purpose as some caps did try a dye their waffenfarbe when the colours came into regulations.
The insignia is museum quality and both eagle and death heads skull insignia show medium wear. It is a size 58 and we recommend this as a display piece and not for wear. Treat it like an original.
The leather sweat band is in excellent condition and the celluloid sweat protector has a shows light age colouring. There are light wear stains on the inside with some darker areas.
The white piping is lightly dirty and yellowing but still bright looking. The leather peak, has many large age cracks & marks on both sides. There is some age related dust in places. There are small amounts of wear and discolouration to the velvet outer headband. The top of the cap is faded with wear.
A genuine Waffen SS Officers cap in this condition will easily go for 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.
