Third Reich SA Kepi, Private Purchase Example for Ostmark/Sudmark-This is a scarcely encountered private purchase example. The body is soft light brown ribbed cloth. This is more like a field cap as the body is not rigid. There is minor wear and discoloration from use. The scallop is pink for Ostmark/Sudmark. The eagle is zinc with a frosted finish that remains partially intact. The button is silver finished pebbled metal. The chinstrap is brown leather. The interior is fully lined in gold cloth (two different shades). There is minor wear and discoloration from use. You can see the maker info in silver. It says Ernst Ressel Mutzenfabrik, Suhl. There is an oil cloth sweatband that is fully intact and only slightly stiff. The cap is a size 55. A scarce offering!
