GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE WHITE TOP OFFICERS CAP NEAR MINT.
A most superb double Erel marked Luftwaffe officers white top visor cap with a large size of ‘59’. The cap has superb form, it is semi saddle shaped, untouched white removable top with its correct wire woven on white background droop tailed eagle, which is attached via three prongs through pre existing holes in the cover. At the back of the eagle is attached the standard metal plate with the three prongs attached. The wire woven central cockade is of the ventilated style for Erel, standard mohair band, a set of silver cap cords, double trimmed visor edge. On inverting the cap the original size ticket of ‘59’ is still attached, the white silk interior is absolutely mint, the light cream sweatband again superb with all of its silver blocked ‘Erel Stirnschutz DRGM’ markings clear to the sweatband, the upper celluloid lozenge untouched with the silver blocked lettering ‘Verkaufs Abteilung Der Luftwaffe Berlin SW68 Erel Sonderklass Extra’ silver blocked markings below the celluloid clear. Slight shredding to the silk pouch that covers the pre fitted celluloid forma that helps the visor stand proud. A superb piece.
