GERMAN WWII WAFFEN SS OFFICERS VISOR CAP.
A late war constructed large size possibly 58 or 59 Waffen SS officers visor cap. The upper body in the classic dove grey colour, which we have observed many Waffen SS items of headgear being produced over the years, the material being quite fluffy and crude in its composition, standard white waffenfarbe to the crown, no moth damage anywhere on the cap, white waffenfarbe to the upper and lower sections of the black centre band, which is of the enlisted mans variety without velvet. The cap has been fitted with a set of officers cap cords, whether it be for the unavailability of velvet at this period of the war or just the hat was produced as a mans/nco’s cap and an officer adapted it for his own use we will never known. Complete with its absolutely original matched pair of eagle and skull. Standard wire cap cords fitted, two silver side buttons. The cap is completely unmarked to the interior, stitches remain where a celluloid lozenge was originally fitted but it has been removed by its wearer and the sweat staining from the wearer’s head has mildly stained the central area of the inner crown. The lining in a light gold with an undamaged all leather light tan sweatband.
