BACKGROUND: Visor caps were a standard issue item for EM/NCO’s during the Third Reich period and regulations 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: Nice Officers quality, private purchase, visor cap with a field-grey doeskin wool body and crown and a blue/green badge cloth centerband with golden yellow wool waffenfarbe to the crown edge and both the top and bottom edges of the centerband.

Between the eagle and cockade is the gilt Dragoon eagle.
