German WWII Heer Army EM/NCO’s M34 Overseas Cap by Karl Kubach. This is a very good service used condition example of a German WWII Heer Army EM/NCO’s M34 overseas cap (Schiffchen). The overseas cap, nicknamed in German military slang as Schiffchen, or literally “little ship” as it resembled an up-turned row-boat, was standard issue for all branches of the Heer/Army.

This example is constructed of a field gray (feldgrau) wool exterior, with a cotton lining. It features a fine BeVo style machine embroidered eagle, with black thread on a forest green base, the standard Heer colors. Below this is a bevo National tri-color cockade on a square faded green background. The inside of the cap has a nice condition lightweight canvas lining, which has a nice marking to the maker as well as the year of manufacture. The insignia are original but were replaced at one time as is often seen on these.

The condition of this cap is very good with one or maybe two small moth nips, though there is overall wear to the exterior shell. The colors are retained quite well, and this is definitely a very attractive and colorful overseas cap with a salty look. I have included plenty of images. LH11015
