SA Kepi for ranks SA Mann to SA Obertruppführer of Group Kurpfalz. The kepi is a 1937 model with sewn flaps and larger silvered eagle. The wool color band shows some mothing just under the upper edge and near the rear seam as may be seen in the images. The leather chinstrap is non-regulation but shows age and damage, and while it would not have been worn with a 1937 kepi, it is similar to non-regulation straps found on earlier SA caps. The interior is named to 'F. Mathis' and stamped with the size 57. The ersatz leather sweatband shows some minor age damage.  There is a label-gun plastic label with what is probably someone's inventory number applied to the top lining. I didn't try to remove it as because doing so would probably damage the upper lining fabric. It's possible that it could be removed by a conservator without damaging the fabric. Overall the kepi shows very little use and retains its original shape and crisp appearance.
