H029180 PANZER EM/NCO'S M34 OVERSEAS CAP. (Feldmütze M34)

BACKGROUND: The M34 Overseas cap for wear by EM/NCO personnel was initially introduced on March 24TH 1934, with non-functional front buttons, and a different insignia configuration. Regulations of October 1935, did away with the buttons and altered the insignia utilized on the cap. The M34 cap was worn by EM/NCO’s until the introduction of the newly designed M42 overseas cap on July 21ST 1942.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Field-grey wool/rayon blend construction cap with fold down side and back panels with gently sloping, downward scallops to the front and the forward sides. The cap has a field-grey enamel painted, metal alloy, ventilation grommet to either side just below the crown edge. The front center of the cap has a machine woven national eagle in matte white threads on a cut-out, woven dark green rayon base. The eagle is neatly hand and machine stitched to the cap. The front center of the fold down panel has a machine woven national tri-color cockade, on a woven field-grey rayon diamond shaped base. The cockade is machine stitched to the cap. The cap has a pink rayon, inverted "V" soutache flanking the cockade indicating service with the armoured troops. The soutache has been applied in the correct manner with two small puncture holes near the bottom edge of the cap. The soutache is machine stitched in place. The interior of the cap is fully lined in ribbed, brown cotton/linen blend fabric. The lining has a faint illegible black size inkstamp with a 1938 date.
