Original German WWII Luftwaffe Flight Branch NCO Visor Cap by Franz Ritter - Size 56
Original Item: Only One available. This is a very good condition Flight Branch Luftwaffe NCO EM Visor Cap. A wonderful honest example with a fantastic swept back shape. It has the slightly indented saddle appearance, which we all love. This excellent wartime NCO Schirmmütze Visor Cap was a high quality manufactured visor. It is fabricated in Luftwaffe grey blue wool, 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 Fallschirmjaeger (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 cockade. Chin strap and buttons are still present and in very good condition. The visor is a classic vulcan construction, gloss pattern with the usual age crazing and degrading.
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 tan leather sweatband is in very good condition, and looks to have at one time had a name label, since removed. Hat is maker marked FRANZ RITTER under the shield, though the markings have degraded a bit, so the date can no longer be seen.
This is an excellent totally honest Luftwaffe NCO peaked visor cap offered with a beautiful shape and look. Hard to find a better one!
