WWII German Luftwaffe Officer Private Purchase Officer Visor Cap-This example is a great quality, private purchase piece. It is produced in soft, trikot weave blue grey wool that has extremely minor discoloration. There are small areas of tracking to the top panel, with one small moth bite. The silver aluminum mesh piping is excellent. The black ribbed center band is as well. The all bullion insignia has "powdering" but is otherwise ok. The chinstrap is an officer type but not bullion so most likely has been replaced. The black vulkanfibre visor has slight crazing but is in great condition otherwise. The underside is the correct green hue often seen. The interior is excellent! It is fully lined in blue rayon which is very clean. There is a fully intact, rhomboid shaped moisture shield which has the nomenclature of the manufacturer, a cottage manufacturer BeHa which is followed by Prima. Also noted is that it was sold through the Luftwaffe Sales Department in Berlin (Verkaufs-Abteilung). There is a dark brown leather sweatband that is excellent. The paper tag on the sweatband identifies it as a size 56. A good example overall!
