Metal edelweiss cap insignia as worn by German Mountain Troops or Gebirgsjager. The badge takes the form of the Edelweiss flower and were worn on the ski cap or 'Bergmutze'. This is the 2nd type post WW2 design with aged finish, but is very similar to the WW2 design.
The insignia features the Totenkopf in mouse grey on a black background, and have the correct ‘Be-Vo’ war-time style manufacture. Exceptional quality with the correct reverse - very difficult to obtain as this correct manufacturing style is rarely used.
