The overall condition of this untouched Bergmütze is used but very good. It shows normal signs of wear and a beautiful worn patina.

It started it's life as an EM/NCO issued Bergmutze, and was period field upgraded to an officer rank accordane the 'October 1942 order', hence the silver piping on top, the 2 silver (schirmmutze chin strap) buttons on the 'flap(s)' and a beautifull (and rare!) officers flatwire t-shaped eagle on the front. All the insignia is period hand applied.

The bergmütze comes with an period applied Edelweiss on the left side (Ghost underneath is present).

On the inside we can clearly see some signs of use. it's complete with sweatband (which is a bit dried out/has some tears) and stiffened front (underneath the lining) to the crown. The Mütze is size marked, with what it looks like '58'.

This Mütze is published in the book ‘The German Army, Mountain Soldier of World War II’ (Juli 2009), by 'W.Krawczyk & B.Jansen', page 13.

These Bergmütze are one of the hardest (if not the hardest) to find field caps of the Third Reich era.

Beautifull example which would look awesome in any collection.
