Superb, WH (Heeres) so-called: 'T-shaped'- (ie. 'M42-pattern'-) cap-eagle/cocarde (ie. cap-trapezoid) as was specifically produced for usage on the (impopular) black-coloured, 'M-42'-model 'Panzer'-side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen')
This is an attractive - just moderately used and truly very rarely seen! - example of a WH (Heeres) so-called: 'T-shaped'- (ie. 'M42-pattern'-) cap-eagle/cocarde (ie. 'Mützentrapez' or: trapezoid-shaped cap-eagle) as was specifically produced for usage on the (impopular) black-coloured, 'M-42'-model 'Panzer'-side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen') and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. just moderately used- and/or once cap-attached-), condition. The piece is neatly executed in so-called 'BeVo'-weave-pattern and is executed in bluish-grey-coloured linnen on a typical, black-coloured- (and/or also linnen-based-) background (as can be seen on the pictures). As most certainly known were these neat cap-trapezoids specifically produced for usage on the impopular 'M-42'-model side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen') but were also used on the much more popular 'M43'-model 'Panzer'-caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen für Panzertruppen'). The piece just shows some minimal age, wear and staining and comes in a carefully pre-folded and trimmed condition: it was with certainty carefully cap-removed and comes as recently found at a German private household. It should be noted that these 'M-42'-model 'Panzer'-side-cap-eagles rank amongst the most difficult to find specimen of the extensive series!
