WW2 Tropical Side cap.

Recommended Posts

Afrikakorpsrat64

Picked up this Tropical side cap off the WAF. The cap, 100 % original,The price, I couldnt pass it up. It for some reason or other had had the original insignia removed, and later some hideous fake insignia added. To which I removed immediately and re sewed an original eagle and cockade to restore the cap. Yea the eagle looks a little rough but give a guy with arthritis and bad eye sight some credit!I was even able to get it all on with out going through the lining. For what the cap and insignia cost me, I saved a Bundle, and it now part of the display! I'm happy with it.
