GERMAN WWII ALLGEMEINE SS EM/NCO VISOR CAP.
A magnificent condition good upper medium size 57 Allgemeine EM/NCO’s visor cap. Standard saddle shape, constructed in the most commonly encountered ribbed material, white waffenfarbe to the top crown with white waffenfarbe to the upper and lower sections of the black ribbed cloth centre band. The insignia is the classic Allgemeine SS style eagle with its matching skull, both pieces of the insignia totally original to the cap with its original leather central buckled chinstrap, quite often the chinstraps are SS marked behind the strap, this strap is so tight to the cap we dare not pull it away to observe any markings with the risk of damaging the chinstrap. Standard black visor. To the outer crown there are two very minor nicks to the upper crown material, which either maybe moth or just being caught by a sharp object, this is difficult to ascertain, otherwise the main body is totally free of any damage of any type. On inverting the cap the interior visor is RZM marked, the mid tan sweatband shows very minor wear use with the faint traces of original owner’s name present. The upper inner crown is lined in the standard russet brown waterproof material where the sides of the cap are lined in the darker tan brushed cotton. Beneath the centre celluloid lozenge, which has one slight chip and some stitches broken the gold inlaid SS runes are perfectly clear with the size stamp ‘57’. The cap is also stamped close to the lozenge ‘VA 1938’, on lifting back the mid tan liner the early style of white RZM ticket with black lettering is present. A superb piece.
