Rare German WWII SS Officers overseas cap. This cap is very nice, clean and is made of Italian wool. Gray/Green wool, it has Silver bullion cord piping to the scallops. Cap has the SS eagle and skull hand sewn to the front, both are BeVo. The wool has no mothing but does show a few light stains on the sides, but these are very light. The liner is a Brown satin or silk material and shows light use and wear, inside the top is the size stamp "56". A rare and unique cap to find, harder to fund in Silver piping. Silver piping was sometimes used by SS officers with the rank of Standartenfuhrer and up but photographs from WWII have shown SS officers wearing both White and Silver piping. This one was originally part of a grouping that included an SS officers tunic and other items.
