Product Description

A unissued, strait from stores WWII German Afrika Korps Model 1938 side cap.

The cap was issued to troops of the Panzer Tank Corps and has the pink soutache of that arm of service. It also has a silver grey woven eagle and cockade on an ochre background. The material is still olive green as the cap has not been bleached by the sun to the light sand colour. The inside is lined in red cotton which was meant to make the caps easier to see if they were lost in a sandstorm. The liner is ink stamped F. Weissback, Glauchau E.41 and is size 60.

The cap would certainly quality ad mint if it weren't for two small tears but as such it must be described as near mint, a shame for such a quality example.

The cap was part of a group of headgear that have come from the world renowned Robby Wilson Collection and are guaranteed as such. His collection is regarded as the largest collection of military headgear ever and while this led to the foundation of the Wilson History and Research Centre in 2008, part of this collection was still kept personal. Following his death in 2012 this personal collection has been sold and this piece is from that portion of his incredible collection.
