037H21 - Early Heer Gebirgjager officer's visor field hat. This hat is a very rare and wonderful piece. Gebirgjager officers were not authorized to wear silver piping on their hats until October '42. So what many self respecting officer's did was they added their own. This hat features thin twist cord piping that was fined stitched around the crown. The two silver buttons were also added to make this a "treue" officer's hat. The hat insignia is the early, rare white "T" and the side Edelweiss. The distinctive Edelweiss was worn only by the mountain troops and is sewn onto the side panel with field gray matching thread. The interior of this hat is the standard medium gray cotton with a full leather sweatband. The lining is marked 54 and M37. There is a metal stiffener I believe is period sewn into the front to give the hat its shape. This is a small hat. It is also very rare. $2000.  More Photos
