Very rare early Heer Panzer troops beret. A very fine example in very nice condition.
Typical removable black top with correctly hand-attached machine-woven insignia. Not, that the insignia a not the early white patterns, but the later grey ones. The black top has a small flap to the center which is in place but looks to be cut in length. The are usually a few mm longer.
Lining and sweat-band with typical water-resistant finish which made it turn hard and dry over the decades.
