History:
The M1934 field cap was characterized by its high front peak, sewn branch colour around the crown, and with a black wool band on the upper and lower portions of the cap. The visor was soft and flexible compared to the stiff like the Vulcan type regular service cap and came without chin cords. The artillery crusher cap used by branch officers, from Heer (Army), to Waffen SS and Panzer Divisions. In 1940 the SS regulations permitted the wearing of different coloured piping on the caps. The M34 field cap with the leather visor for commissioned officers began to be called "Old Style Officer's" after the introduction of the "New Style Officer's" field cap in 1938.
