PRUSSIA – TELLERMMÜTZE – ENLISTED MAN – PRIVATE PURCHASE – ONE YEAR VOLUNTEER
Very high quality pre WW I Tellermmütze from Prussia. The Tellermmütze is a private purchase cap and of very high quality for a man in a Prussian Infanterie regiment. It is very likely that he was a One Year Volunteer (OYV) as the state and Reich kokarden are officer which would have been allowed.
The condition of the cap is pristine with no mothing.
The interior of the cap has a high quality officer style leather sweatband and a beige silk liner. Interestingly there is a brass letter “B” affixed to the liner.
This is an exceptional cap!
