Description

Typical high quality Luftwaffe officer's visor cap by Erel. The cap features high quality hand embroidered bullion eagle and winged wreath. The eagle pattern looks a bit different than what I'm used to seeing with Erel LW visors so it may or may not be replaced.  The woven aluminum piping along the top edge shows fraying at the rear of the cap, which may be seen in the photos. Pale yellow artificial silk lining with Erel 'Extra' maker's mark and with celluloid sweat diamond showing some edge chipping, The leather sweatband is correctly Erel and "Stirnschutz" marked. Overall the cap shows some wear and age but has survived in very fine condition.
