Heer crusher field cap or Knautschmütze by Erel Sonderklasse


Rare early Erel Sonderklasse crusher cap or Knautschmütze. The cap is a nice size 57 and in good used condition. The cap is made by Erel which is one of the most well known cap producers. The cap was on display in La Gleizes December 1944 Museum for over 20 years. The sweatband in the cap was replaced at some point because it is heavily worn. Inside the caps liner one can see a large amount of stains showing the character of the cap which was obviously heavily worn throughout the war. The insignia to the front of the cap are nicely handsewn. The cap has been discussed on the Wehrmacht-Awards forum. A rare infantry crusher cap that would make a great addition to any combat officers display!
