WWII German Kreis Level Political Leader’s Visor Cap-This German Political Leader’s Cap is a textbook private purchase example. It is piped in white as this is for the Kreis (district) level. The body is made of a good textured tan cloth material with the brown velvet centerband. There is some minor discoloration to the top and the cardboard structure of the centerband has one break in it, which does not really effect the appearance or the shape. The top has a fine saddle shape. The insignia consists of the long straight winged political eagle and the fancy wreath configuration with enameled political cockade. These both show wear consistent with the overall cap. It has a nice early bullion chin strap which is secured by two gold pebbled buttons. The interior of this size 55 cap has a light tan silk lining. There are some tears on the sides near the sweatband. The sweatband does show some wear and there is a very slight indication of glue in the forehead area. It has the maker's information on the interior. This is perhaps where it came loose at one time. Overall very good sound condition!
