GERMAN WWII KRIEGSMARINE CAPTAIN AND ABOVE WHITE TOP OFFICERS VISOR CAP.
A rare cap from the Kriegsmarine being the white top officers visor cap worn by all officers above the rank of Captain up to Commander and a favourite of the submarine commanders within the Navy. This example is in excellent condition, it has much service wear and has a wonderful service feel about it. Standard cloth covered peak with the wide row of celion constructed leaves with a bullion large size cockade, an aluminium gilded eagle attached to the white removable top, standard mohair centre band, anchor side buttons, patent naval style chin strap. On inverting the cap the full interior liner is present with one only of two initials of the original owner remaining pinned to the sweatband. The upper inner crown has its complete undamaged centre celluloid lozenge, which has never had any retailers or makers mark applied to it. The interior satin gold lining is all present, it is stained through wear use. The very edges of the front peak stitches are frail where the cap is applied to the main body of the cap. The cap also comes with its removable blue top, which has its bullion Kriegsmarine eagle attached.
