CAVARLY "5th REGIMENT" OVERSEAS CAP
October 1935 pattern (M34), feldgrau wool/rayon blend construction cap with fold down side and back panels with gently sloping, downward scallops to the front and forward sides.
The front center of the cap has a BeVo hand woven national eagle. The front center of the fold down panels has a hand stitched national tri-color cockade, square shaped.
The cap has an inverted "V" yellow soutache flanking the cockade. The soutache has been applied in the correct manner, being machine sewn in place and inserted through two small puncture holes near the bottom edge of the cap.
There's on the front side an alu skull, hand sewn, and IMO original to the overseas cap. A neat shadow is well visible under the skull and signs of wear are present on the wool and insigna, along the edges of the skull.
Alu bullion cord is still in perfect conitions. Vent grommets are in place.
The interior of the cap is fully lined in black rayon with leather sweatband on the frontal area. Lining has some tears (see pictures).
A beautiful, early, overseas cap for Cavarly officer with an amazing patina; a rare one, belonged to an officer of the famous 5th Regiment.
