WWII German Waffen SS Officer Visor Cap-This super desirable cap has a body of field grey, trikot weave, issue quality wool that is in very good condition, having minor wear and some discoloration from use. The owner removed the stiffening bands so it has the look and feel of a "crusher" cap. The front peak is very high and prominent. The insignia consists of a zinc, silver finished totenkopf and a nickel silver, tombak eagle. Each is an original example but has been reapplied to this cap. The center band is excellent as is the officer type bullion double chincord. It is held in place by a pair of silver finished pebbled metal buttons. The visor is black vulkanfibre. It is firmly attached. It has faded a bit with some minor wear at the chincord but is otherwise just fine. The underside is cross hatched and finished in an orange brown hue. The interior is fully lined in greenish brown rayon that is in very good condition with only minor discoloration from use. There is a diamond shaped celluloid moisture shield that is excellent. The sweatband is orange brown ersatz leather. There are multiple tears, some missing material and it is very stiff. It is a size 56. A very good example of a desirable cap!
