GERMAN WWII WAFFEN SS INFANTRY OFFICERS VISOR CAP.
A very scarce heavily service worn Waffen SS Infantry officers visor cap. The cap is a double marked ‘Erel’, the actual crown of the cap has no moth holes but some moth tracking. White piping is faded to the upper area but still bright underneath the protected parts to the upper and lower sections of the black velvet centre band. Minor moth tracking to the nap of the cloth to the overhang at either side of the cap. Good high saddle shape. Complete with its original cap cords and matching side buttons. A completely matching set of Waffen SS eagle and skull. Some minor loss to the black finish on the left hand side of the visor. Heavily thumb marked to the cream interior of the visor where it has been taken on and off the head many times. The interior leather sweatband is complete but with the silver blocked ‘Erel’ markings to the sweatband faded. There is no damage to the leather. The interior lining in gold silk with obvious wear use, the central celluloid lozenge with its ‘Officer Kleiderkasse Berlin’ Erel trademark in silver block is still visible underneath the celluloid lozenge. A small 1cm area of moth damage to the waffenfarbe at the lower section of the black centre band at the very rear of the cap. A wonderful example of a well service used Waffen SS infantry officers visor cap.
