The hat is in salty condition and its sweatband is still absorbed the ointment.  Never cleaned after war. All insignia is original to the hat. T shape insignia is attached to the upper seam with it's upper part, the rest is hand stitched. Aluminum early edelweiss badge is also hand attached.  Size approx 58.  Some moth holes, but it's still a very nice example with lot of character. Very nice combat veteran. One looker hat
