Waffen SS M40 Enlisted Mans Black Overseas Panzer Cap
This is a reproduction, heavily aged, overseas cap for a Waffen SS Enlisted Panzer man. This cap has been made to look as if worn in the field many times and then aged 70+ years.
The M40 overseas cap was based on the M34/38 overseas cap as worn by EM/NCO’s. Originally the M40 was only produced in field-grey until March 1940 when a black panzer version for Panzer personnel was introduced.
The insignia is museum quality and both eagle and death heads skull insignia show heavy wear. The skull has been hand stitched and the eagle hand stitched. The skull has a field black background as used on the standard SS overseas caps.
The outside and inside is dirty and old looking. There are several moth/wear holes on the outside/inside. The size is 56 and it has a rusted pin holding the top ridges together - a common practice.
A genuine Waffen SS M1940 cap in this condition will easily go to several thousand pounds, which is out of the price range of most average collectors. This one looks the part and is at a snip of a price.
