A real "been there" untouched Luftwaffe M43.

Luftwaffe blue/grey, wool/rayon, blend construction cap, features fold down side and back panels with a scalloped front with a two buttons closure at the front center. The buttons appear to have their original stitching.

The back and side panels were designed to be folded down to protect the wearers ears and neck and the scalloped front section could be secured with the buttons closed under the wearers chin.

The front center of the cap has machine embroidered insigna. Agle and cockade are original stitching to the cap. The cap has an extended cloth covered forward visor with an internal cardboard stiffener. The interior of the cap is fully lined in grey rayon and RBNr marking are still partially visible.

Nice worn and used, but untouched example.

It would be very hard to find a Luftwaffe M43 cap with more appeal.
