German WWII Allgemeine Officer SS Visor Cap, private purchase Example by Felix Weiβbach- This handsome and desirable visor cap is produced in soft, ribbed black tricot weave wool that is excellent, with just the slightest hint of wear at the front of the top panel. This is hardly a distraction but has to be mentioned. The peak is fairly prominent. The white piping around the top panel and the edges of the soft black velvet center band is very clean. The insignia is drop dead gorgeous! The eagle and Totenkopf match perfectly and retain a portion of their original frosted finish. Each has a little wear and some toning/burnishing to the metal where the finish is missing. The silver bullion officer double chincord is excellent and remains tightly affixed to the cap via a pair of small silver finished pebbled buttons. The shiny black vulkanfibre visor shows some minor wear and crazing as to be expected from use and age. It remains tightly affixed to the cap. The underside of the visor is finished in the expected orange/brown hue, and you can clearly see the “RZM SS” ink stamp, even though it is faded. The interior is fully lined in a top quality, black rayon/silk material that is in excellent condition. It is stamped in white “VA 1938” inside a square. There is a diamond shaped, clear moisture shield that is fully intact. There is a piece of paper inside the slot, but it is blank. There is a dark brown leather sweatband that has minor wear and discoloration from use. The name of the owner must have been etched into the sweatband and this has been “removed.” Underneath the sweatband is a large oil cloth RZM tag which is stamped with the number “27,” indicating production by Felix Weiβbach of Glauchau. A fine example of this desirable visor cap!
