Later pattern, machine woven national eagle with outstretched wings, clutching a wreathed, canted, swastika in it’s talons, in matte grey rayon threads, positioned above a national tri-color cockade, with a black outer circle encompassing a white inner circle and a red center dot, on an woven, field-gray rayon, "T" formed base.
The German army originally adopted a slightly modified version of the NSDAP’s, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (National Socialist German Worker’s Party), national eagle by order on February 17TH 1934, with instructions to have it applied to all steel helmets, visor caps, and tunics by May 1ST 1934. Regulations followed on October 30TH 1935 that stipulated the national eagle was also to be applied to all field caps. Generally the national eagle for wear on the EM/NCO’s overseas and M43 field caps were machine woven, first in white on a dark green base, (circa 1934), then later in matte grey on a field-grey base, (circa 1939), while Officer’s versions were embroidered in bright silver/aluminum wire threads. A machine woven version in bright silver/aluminum flat-wire threads was also utilized by Officer’s but was also very popular with senior NCO’s. Originally the Weimar, Reichswehr era, oval black, red and gold national cockade was utilized until it was replaced with a circular national cockade in black, white, and red on March 14TH 1933 and utilized through-out the Third Reich period on all soft caps with minor manufacturing variations. Of Note: This "T" form insignia with the combined national eagle and tri-color cockade was first used circa 1936, and was most commonly worn on the Mountain Troopers and the M43 field caps.
