Imperial German, Great War, Rare Prussian Hussar Officer's (Schirrmmutze)Visor Cap from Hussar Regiment 13. The Cap is Blue Green with a wide Poppy Red Band and with Reich and State Kokarden also present. There is a White trim band at the top. This is a very high quality Cap that has seen a lot of service.
It is near impossible to find a Visor Cap without some moth tracking, this cap has no detectable moth nips on the top (see photo). At some point in time the visor was reinforced with stitching (see photo). Hussars were light Cavalry Troops. Cavalry units were Hussars, Uhlans, Dragoon's and Cuirassiers. The only Cavalry Division in the peacetime was the Guards Cavalry Division.
The Lieb Hussars had only one Brigade. By 1916 Cavalry units were converted to infantry units. Imperial Germany was a federation of twenty-seven kingdoms, duchies, principalities and "free and imperial cities".
