S.M.S. KAISER BARBAROSSA DONALD DUCK CAP
Another cap from my collection purchased this on August 10 1984. This WWI or earlier German Navy Cap is for the pre-dreadnought battleship of the Kaiser Friedrich III class. The ship was launched in 1900 and was outdated for front line use in WW1 and was used in the Baltic ocean. The cap ship band is faded and worn the painted steel cockade is a typical WW1 period. The wool cloth has quite a few moth tracks but no noticed holes. The inside sweat band is missing with just the heavy reinforcement strip there. The inside top cloth has a white stamp that shows the letters (B or O) A W then 2 9 10 then what looks like SAY?either A rare WW1 naval cap.
