Description

This visor cap is listed under reproductions, however it appears to have started out as an original cap, although whether as a Luftwaffe General or something else is unclear. The cap is made of a fine quality blue grey wool. The bullion eagle appears to be a reproduction; the winged wreath and cockade is harder to tell. Gold bullion woven piping shows wear in spots. The black visor with green reverse is correct for a Luftwaffe cap. The inside of the cap is lined in grey artificial silk. The celluloid sweat shield is correctly embossed with the obscure wartime maker information: Josef Kaliga of Halle. Whether original or older reproduction is hard to say.
