This is either a Prussian infantry or cavalry regiment reserve officer’s schirmütze. It has a dark-blue cover. It features a 1 ½” wide red trim band. A single thin red piping band encircles the top. It displays the officer Reich’s kokarde and the Kingdom of Prussia’s reserve officer kokarde.
The exterior’s overall condition is above-average. A couple of moth nips appear on the blue cover’s top. The wide red trim band shows some soiling, but no real evidence of moth problems. The cap’s interior exhibits a well used brown leather sweatband. Most of the cap’s original silk liner is missing from its interior top (due to age), exposing the wool’s color. Even with this fault, the cap displays well. It is a true value.
