THIS CAP IS ON HOLD AS/NB
MEGA SCARCE Waffen SS General Visor Cap by Aug. Schellenberg-That's right! A Waffen SS general! We have not had one like this to offer in a long, long time. This is obviously a top-quality cap and it is a beautiful piece to behold. The body is soft, doe skin wool in field grey. The body is in near excellent condition throughout, the exception being some moth nips and tracking to the top panel. It is extremely clean! The silver mesh piping in place of the "standard" white cloth piping indicates that this was for a general of the Waffen SS. The center band is black velvet and excellent. Check out that insignia! It is in fantastic condition, retaining all of its silver finish. The officer type bullion double chincord is in great condition too. It is held in place by a pair of silver finished pebbled metal buttons. The visor is black vulkanfibre. It is firmly attached and in great shape. The underside of the visor is finished in a pale green hue, also being cross hatched. The interior is fully lined in green rayon that is excellent. There is a rhomboid shaped celluloid moisture shield that is excellent. The nomenclature of the maker, August Schellenberg of Berlin is rendered in silver. The sweatband is green leather, great condition with minor wear and discoloration from use (there is a tiny tear as well). It has a fancy diamond pattern to go along with an embossed "Stirndruckfrei" motto indicating this cap is equipped with a "pressure free forehead". Underneath the sweatband is an ink stamped number "2". The cap is a size 57. What an opportunity! This is a fantastic piece and the ultimate example of Waffen SS headgear!
