Original German WWII 1937 dated Luftwaffe Flight Branch Visor Cap by G.A. Hoffmann - Size 57
Die Deutsche Qualitätsmütze
BERLIN S.W. 29
A wonderful honest example with a fantastic shape. It still has the original crown stiffener installed, so it retains it's original round appearance, without the "sag" usually seen. It has however unfortunately seen some better days, as during its 80 year life it unfortunately suffered moth damage to the crown, as pictured.
This 1937 dated NCO Schirmmütze Visor Cap was a originally high quality manufactured visor. It is fabricated in Luftwaffe grey blue wool, with wide black wool cap band, plus three rows of gold-yellow (goldgelb) color piping for the flight branch (Waffenfarbe) around the circumference.
The peaked visor cap retains a very nice aluminum pin Luftwaffe droop-tail eagle with swas as well as centrally mounted aluminum oak leaves with cockade. Chin strap and buttons are still present and in very good condition. The visor is a classic matte pattern, probably made of pressed vulcanfibre.
The body with its gold-yellow piping is in good shape, aside from the moth damage. The size 57 liner has a brown oilcloth interior, complete with the original moisture shield. The sweatband is made of brown pressed paper or felt, and unfortunately has multiple gears.
This is a very nice totally honest Luftwaffe NCO peaked visor cap, offered in good condition, with the original stiffener still installed. Ready to display!
