Superb branch piped Waffen-ss officers visor cap for Kavalerie or Panzer-Aufklärung

12,750.00

Extremely scarce original Waffen-SS yellow branch piped visor for officers serving in the Kavalerie or Panzeraufklärung. The visor is a textbook and very rare original example that for sure will be a draw dropper in any collection. The cap is made from high quality doeskin cloth with the typical black velvet band bordered with a set of yellow piping and the piping on the top of the cap in a slightly thicker form – just how its supposed to be. The cap comes with a set of cupal insignia with equal wear. The 55/56 sized cap was originally veteran acquired with just the eagle attached to the cap with one prong. The skull was matched and attached to the cap post war and is made from the same material and similar wear. The chinstrap sits nicely with a minor imprint on the visor. The visor and sweatband are factory attached to the cap without repairs. The lining in the cap is in good condition and does not show any signs of tampering. There is one moth damage externally, otherwise it is a pristine example in good worn condition. These branch coloured caps are extremely scarce due to regulations stating that after december 1940 all branches would wear white piping. This rule was not always followed as this example clearly shows. This example is a real stunner that would be a prime piece in any headgear collection, a original and extremely scarce visor for a armoured recon officer that would be impossible to upgrade!
