GXH-0001-JM, WWI German Colonial Enlisted Medical Corps Feldmutze

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #18440

This hat is in great condition! It shows only minor age and wear and very little color fading. The national cockade to the front shows age and wear. There is light rust patina to the edges and the white paint in the ring has begun chipping away. It was stitched down with thick white thread that was dyed or colored red, which has begun to fray and the color is fading. The surface of the corduroy is in very good condition, but has a bit of a "crusty" or "crunchy" feel to it, as if it has gotten wet and the dried stiff. The cap band and piping are in dark blue which we believe is for the medical corps. This being the "visor-less" Feldmutze, this would be for an enlistedman. The NCO Feldmutze had a small leather visor, which this does not. The interior shows light staining from head wear, but no visible damage. No mothing visible. There are two square shaped stamps on the interior, but they have faded so much they are no longer readable. This one came to us from the collection of a Russian immigrant from Port Arthur (inside Modern China). She was the daughter of a Russian military commander who was able to collect items from visiting dignitaries. She immigrated to the United States during World War One and the collection was later broken up before several pieces came to us.
