Deutsches Afrika Korps ( DAK ) M41 Officers Field Cap by Carl Halfar

The M41 tropical field cap was introduced in early 1941 and design of the cap was loosely based on the Mountain Troopers, Bergmütze with minor variations. Officer ranks caps were distinguished from EM/NCO’s with silver piping for the ranks of Lieutenant to Oberst and gilt piping for the ranks of Generalmajor to Generalfeldmarschall while EM/NCO’s ranks caps were not piped.

The different branches of service within the army were allocated a particular identifying waffenfarbe, (Branch of Service Color), and originally the M41 tropical field caps had a branch of service soutache applied to the front consisting of an inverted "V" encompassing the national tri-color cockade but regulations of July 10TH 1942 abolished the use of the soutache and instructed it to be removed from the caps, although the directive was not strictly adhered to.

Both the eagle and the cockade are hand-stitched to the cap, and only to the outer layer, as is correct
The interior of the cap is fully lined in light weight red cotton
The cap is nicely stamped to the maker Carl Halfar, Berlin, and size 55

Condition is very good, showing some wear and staining from service.
There is a tiny bit of oxidation around the ventilation grommets as well, which have lost their original coating. The front visor is in good shape, but does have a bend in the center from storage as these often do

in used but very good condition!
