H025387 INFANTRY EM/NCO'S VISOR CAP. (Schirmmütze)
BACKGROUND: Visor caps were a standard issue item for all personnel during the Third Reich period and regulations dictated the form of dress they were to be worn with based on the individuals rank. Regulations for wear of the visor cap by EM/NCO ranks dictated that they be worn with the Reporting and Walking-Out dress, and the Undress uniform. Regulations also required Senior NCO’s to wear the visor cap with the Service uniform. Of Note: Certain Senior NCO ranks were also permitted to wear privately purchased visor caps of higher quality.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Super high quality, private purchase, visor cap with a field-grey wool body and crown and a blue/green badge cloth centerband with white wool waffenfarbe to the crown edge and both the top and bottom edges of the centerband. The front center of the cap has a silver washed, stamped aluminum, second pattern, national eagle. The front center of the centerband has a second pattern, stamped, polished natural aluminum, oak-leaf wreath encompassing a three piece, high relief, national tri-color cockade. The cap has a blackened patent leather chinstrap intact with two, black painted, rectangular, sheet metal retaining clips and two black painted, vertically oval, sliding length adjustment buckles. The chinstrap is secured to the cap by two, small, smooth finish, black painted, magnetic sheet metal buttons. The cap has an extended, black lacquered vulcanfibre visor with a subtly raised lip at the forward edge. The interior of the cap is fully lined in two grades of gold rayon and has its original celluloid sweat diamond intact. The interior of the cap also has a complete original erstaz sweatband. A small section of the stitching on the sweatband has pulled loose, but not bad. Size marked 55. Superb cap!
