A very nice condition NSKK enlisted ranks kepi constructed in the classic olive colour of he NSKK uniforms. Black upper part with its very finely Bevo woven NSKK eagle. Standard brown SA style kepi strap. No moth or damage. To the interior upper inner crown is russet brown lined with what appears to be a Polish word stamped into the crown, which maybe a Polish or Czech theatrical costumiers. The liner is good with a section of 3cm missing.
A nice unused set of silver heavy wire woven collar patches on green uniform cloth backing with finely woven black centres indicating a pioneer unit.
A very nice cap from the army of the Third Reich but still having Reichswehr period features, constructed in the officer quality ribbed material with the slightly lighter apple green centre band, red piped overall for artillery, fitted with the early type short winged Third Reich eagle, the smaller wire woven Reichswehr style cockade, silver cap cords, silver side buttons. No moth damage. To the interior the mid tan sweatband all complete, some extra stitches applied to hold the liner to the main body in a 5cm section. Gold lined. Small central lozenge, which is stitched on three sides only to the upper inner lining allowing a card to be inserted, which is pre printed with the name of the maker or retailer ‘Michael Keck Uniformen Erlangen’ with a section to the centre for the addition of an officer or mans name, in this case the officer has applied his name but dampness has made it difficult to reach, however the rank is clear of Major. Stamped ‘56½’. Interestingly we have recently bought a very early SS mans cap with this same form of lozenge and removable card stitched to the upper inner lining. Behind the sweatband in the forehead area is the remains of the liquefied orange foam cushion.
