German WWII Army M42 Side Cap-This is the desirable short-lived model, that is essentially a model 43 cap but without a bill. It is made of a regulation textured green wool material and each side has a single bakelite grommet. The desirable two-piece BeVo eagle and cockade are hand applied and original to the cap. This has an interesting set of zinc buttons and not what is usually found on these caps, but is unquestionably original to the cap. The size 58 rayon linking is well marked with the makers name and location, along with the issue depot information. This is F 42. Overall, near excellent condition!
