    Peaked cap with Kyffhaeuserbund badge. Any Idea?

    Recommended Posts

    Good evening Gentlemen,

    About 15 years ago, I bought an old peaked cap sporting a Brunswick officer's cockade and an enamelled oval Kyffhaeuserbund badge.

    It is made of khaki cotton material, with red woollen piping and red-brown cotton lining.

    Does anyone have any info about it? 

    See pictures in attachment.

    All the best.

    Could it be a cap originally issued to German colonial troops before the end of the Empire (pre-1919) and used during the Weimar Republik by its owner as a member of the Brunswick branch of the Kyffhaeuserbund (by adding the corresponding oval cockade at the top) … ?
