This reproduction of a WWII U-Boat captain's white-topped peaked cap has a blue lining and comes with the Kriegsmarine eagle (affixed to the hat) and the unaffixed brass devil and smiling sawfish boat badges, which can be stitched to the hat with needle and thread, just as the originals were. The placement of a captain's boat badges were to the left front of the cap. The devil was associated with U-522, the Topps boat, and the smiling sawfish was associated with U-96, the Lehmann-Willenbrock boat.

While the Kriegsmarine eagle was standard and manufactured, boat badges were created by individual sailors. This hat was made by Steinmetz & Hehl, whose owner tells me blue linings haven't been used in their hats since 1995, so I would assume this reproduction dates to pre-1995. There is a small smudge on top of the hat (visible in the right-facing photo). This hat and the accompanying badges are intended solely for collectors or for use in the film, television, and theatrical industries. I have no association with Nazis, National Socialism, the Third Reich, or past/current paramilitary organizations.
