BACKGROUND: Originally, members of the fledgling S.A. had no official headgear, and most wore a grey, Austrian-style ski cap until the introduction of the soft kepi in 1924. It was modified in 1929, taking, effectively, its final "coffee can" form. After 1933, the colored tops which had hitherto been reserved for S.A. leaders were extended to all ranks.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A tan cotton twill cap with a flat crown, stiff sides and visor. The wire-stiffened edge of the crown is piped in the same material, and there are two metal ventilation grommets just below the crown edge to either side. M1929 pattern eagle to the front. Gilt colored front button. Nice tan body with green wool sides. Double ventilation grommets. Original chinstrap. Leather sweatband is mostly complete, missing a roughly 15cm section. Roughly a size 54/55.
