BACKGROUND: The Officer’s M38 overseas field cap was originally introduced on December 6TH 1938 as a replacement for the old pattern visored field cap that had been introduced in March 1934.

Originally the M38 overseas caps were only produced in a field-grey material until March 27TH 1940 when a black version for Panzer officers was introduced. Company and Field grade Officer’s M38 overseas caps were piped with bright silver aluminum braid while Officer’s with Generals ranks utilized bright gilt braid piping.
