Original German WWII Luftwaffe Officer Visor Cap by Erel (Double Marked)
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very good condition early-war Luftwaffe Officer's Schirmmütze Visor Cap by eReL. An excellent, honest example with a wonderful swept back shape. It has the saddle appearance, which we all love.
This nice condition early-war EREL Officer's Schirmmütze Visor Cap was a very high quality manufactured visor. Fabricated in Luftwaffe blue gray Fliegerblau (Flier's Blue) wool, with wide black ribbed rayon cap band, plus three rows of fine silver bullion piping around the circumference. Fronted by a heavy bullion embroidered Luftwaffe insignia pair that includes a silver bullion national eagle on a wool backer above a high relief silver bullion oak leaf wreath with stylized wings and cockade.
Front of visor is patent leather, finely stitched at the brim. The underside of the visor in green. The size 54 liner has the gold rayon interior with the celluloid moisture shield still intact. You can see the bold gold eReL logo. This is a Erel-Sonderklasse model which was a high grade of eReL visor caps. The supple leather sweatband also bears an embossed eRel logo.
One of our favorite aspects of the cap is that it was worn, you can see wear on the underside of the brim as that is the spot that the officer's right thumb would pinch the visor in order to put on and take off the cap.
Overall very good condition with some wear to the lower silver piping, but no signs of moth. A truly high quality Luftwaffe officer cap of the early war style with silver bullion embroidered cockade and eagle.
