GERMAN WWII WAFFEN SS INFANTRY OFFICERS VISOR CAP.
A most superb Waffen SS infantry officers visor cap that we sold ourselves approximately 5 years ago and have recently repurchased this item from our client. It is amazing how many of the Waffen SS Officer visor caps appear on the market in the very light grey colour, as against grey green. This is not a standard rule but is a pattern we have seen emerge over many years of handling these types of items. That colour not only applies to visor caps but to some of the high quality M43 caps and some of the overseas caps. The enlisted ranks generally appear in grey green, on pulling back the gold upper inner crown lining the size ‘56˝’ can be seen. Good high saddle shape, constructed in very high quality material. Two minor virtually invisible repairs to two moth nips to the left overhang of the cap otherwise moth damage free. Good strong nap to the grey cloth. A very tight fitting black velvet centre band with standard white waffenfarbe. Standard officers cap cords with matching side buttons and a good matched set of the SS eagle and skull in the finish and format for Waffen SS caps as against the more silvered finish for Allgemeine officers caps. Internally the cap is all complete, its leather sweatband in its light tan leather with evidence of wear use around the crown, all stitches holding the sweatband to the main body and the peak good and strong. The upper inner gold lining with age staining with an undamaged and complete ‘Sonderklasse’ gold blocked label beneath the undamaged centre celluloid lozenge. Behind the forehead area the remains of the orange foam head cushion, which has semi solidified. A very good example of the Waffen SS infantry officers visor cap. Condition:
