Original German WWII 1939 dated Luftwaffe Flight Branch EM-NCO Visor Cap by Kürschner & Mützenmacher - Size 54
Original Item: Only One available. This is a very good condition Flight Branch Luftwaffe EM/NCO Visor Cap, which is still clearly clearly marked under the celluloid "diamond" on the crown of the cap:
BERLIN NO 18 Lieferjahr 1939
This maker name is a wartime makers Union abbreviated markind, which in full would read: Landes Lieferungs Genossenschaft Kürschner und Mützenmacher Handwerks, an association of Furriers & Hatmakers, this one located in Berlin.
This is 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. This very good wartime NCO Schirmmütze Visor Cap is a high quality manufactured visor. It is fabricated in Luftwaffe grey blue wool gabardine, with wide black wool cap band, plus three rows of goldgelb (Gold-Yellow) color piping for the flight branch (Waffenfarbe) around the circumference. This included Aviator troops such as pilots and ground personnel as well as Fallschirmjäger (parachute troops).
The peak visor cap retains an excellent, high quality, aluminum pin Luftwaffe eagle with swas as well as centrally mounted aluminum oak leaves with tri-color cockade. Chin strap and buttons are still present and in good condition, though one of the end pieces around the button is in very delicate condition. The visor is a classic vulcanfibre construction, gloss pattern with the usual age crazing and degrading. It has a vinyl border, which is somewhat degraded.
The body with its gold-yellow piping is in excellent shape. The size 56 cap is lined with light brown canvas, with an intact celluloid moisture shield. The interior does have a lot of pulling of the canvas out from under the sweatband, so the interior structure can be seen. The sweatband itself is brown oilcloth, and does show moderate wear.
This is an excellent totally honest Luftwaffe NCO peaked visor cap offered with a beautiful shape and look. Hard to find a better one!
