German WWII Afrika Korps Side Cap for Mountain Troops-Unquestionably one of the rarest piping’s found in this style issue side cap. This was part of a large cache found back in the 1990’s. The body still has some folds for having been stored for such a long time. This is textbook throughout with the olive-green body with one bakelite ventilation hole on each side. The insignia is beautifully applied this includes the green waffenfarbe for mountain troops. The red cloth liner is a size 57, very well marked and dated ’41. This would be very hard to upgrade.
