Re: PZ sidecap

Interesting Cap, personally not keen on the eagle or cockade

Re: PZ sidecap

Insignia are not applied in the normal/usual factory way so no one can tell for sure when the application was done. It could have been done by the soldier during the war or by a collector post war. It's really anyone's guess. If this issue is reflected in the price then no prob.

Re: PZ sidecap

The eagle is no problem IMO.
These were also used on PZ caps. The only issue is the poor application.
