The overseas cap, was nicknamed in German military slang as Schiffchen, or literally "little ship" as it resembled an up-turned row-boat, was standard issue for corps.
This example is constructed from cotton with silver wire badge and cockade. Colour is slightly faded but presents very well. size 57 with excellent liner.
