Very nice Kriegsmarine coastal artillery overseas cap. The fabric in the back is a different color from the front. I believe this is an interesting example of a lot that was contracted to a French manufacturer. The French, irritated at being an occupied country, made all the caps in the smallest size possible. Since most of the Germans were not twelve year olds the caps had to be resized. Maker marked B.A.W. with a couple of size markings, the latest of which looks to be 58. Overall good, solid condition with some loose stitching and wearing to the fabric pile. Still structurally sound ad a nice example of a relatively scarce cap.
