Our reproduction Imperial German Kürassier-Regt. Model 1907 Officers/NCO Cap (Feldmützen or Krätzchenare), are brand new and made in Germany.
Note the stiff rounded shape of the top brim of the cap retained by wire and supported at the front and rear by wire support strips.
They are exact high quality reproductions of a German Kürassier-Regt WWI Officers cap, not cheap Chinese versions. They are exactly like the originals and are made with the correct materials and fittings including Ersatz leather sweatband and vulcanfibre peak.
These come in authentic pink/white wool with pink cap band and piping and Reich & Prussian cockades. The pink is actually brighter than show in the pictures.
These are made to order and there may be a delay of 4 to 5 weeks between order and the cap being sent. Email us before buying please!
Most WWI Enlisted caps of the Imperial German Regiments are available from us but some have to be made up to your specification. If you don't see one you require, please email us.
