Army Signals Officer Private Purchase Cap by Ludwig Fuchs-This handsome cap is produced in a high quality, doeskin wool that is very soft and is quite clean. There is minor moth tracking in a few spots, seen mostly under the folded over sections of the top panel. The front peak is prominent, giving the cap a great look. The bright yellow piping, for signals (Nachrichten) )personnel, is excellent as is the dark green badge cloth center band. The aluminum alloy eagle and wreath retain all of their original silver finish, and the nickel silver finished cockade has toned nicely. The Officer’s bullion chin cords are excellent and securely affixed to the cap via a pair of small silver pebbled aluminum buttons. The black vulkanfibre visor shows minor crazing and fading. The underside of the visor is finished in tan. The top panel of the interior is lined in golden rayon which is very clean. The sides of the interior are lined in ribbed gold rayon. There is a rhomboid shaped clean moisture shield with maker information that reads “Ludwig Fuchs Feine Uniformen Würzburg Ludwigstr. 1 ½ Tel. 4987”. The size of the cap, 53, is ink stamped onto the lining. There is a tan leather sweatband that is near excellent with minor discoloration from use.
