Original German WWII Luftwaffe Officer Visor Cap by Erel - Named
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very good condition Luftwaffe Officer's Schirmmütze Visor Cap by EREL. An honest example with a wonderful swept back shape. It has the saddle appearance, which we all love.
This 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 black. The size 58 liner has the gold rayon interior with the celluloid moisture shield still intact. Original paper name tag is still in place and reads BOBAL. You can also see the bold gold eReL logo with retailer information for Friedrick Benson. This is a Sonderklasse model which was a high grade of eReL visor caps. The supple leather sweatband is complete and also in very good condition.
One of our favorite aspects of the cap is that it was worn, you can see wear in all the right places.
Overall very good condition with some wear in places but no signs of moth. A truly quality Luftwaffe officer cap of the mid-war style with silver bullion embroidered cockade and eagle.
