Description

Mid 1930s period Kreis level Political Leader visor cap is constructed of golden wool with the early black wool piping and medium brown velvet cap band. The wool has quite a bit of nap loss and some normal handling soiling. There is wear the cap band with a hole to the left of the early political cockade. Early political eagle is correct but there smudges to each side of the eagle's wingtips indicating an incorrect eagle was attached at some time. Silver/aluminum chin cords are correct for leaders below Kreisleiter. Brown finished visor. The interior has blotted out markings indicating probable theater use after the war. Theater used caps are often found with replaced sweatbands and other pieces due to use and wearing out. The example has a Peküro style Stirndruckfrei hinged sweatband and artificial silk lining. Celluloid sweat shield is no longer present. The cap presents well for a display.
