Heer (Army) Infantry NCO/EM Visor Cap
Heer (Army) Infantry NCO/EM Visor Cap - This cap is in typical Heer army green wool with a 42mm forest green band and a traditional high peak with matching white piping along the top edge and flanking either side of the band, indicating the branch to be Infantry. It is decorated with a well detailed silvered aluminum eagle insignia on the peak and and an open silvered aluminum wreath surrounding a tri-colour cockade on the band. The dual-buckled black leather chinstrap, designating the wearer to be an enlisted man, is attached to black lacquered buttons on either side. The vulcan visor has a smooth black leather-look upper. The dark brown leather sweatband shows soiling and wear from active use. The inside of the cap is lined in a champagne-coloured cotton, the dome formerly brandishing a celluloid shield, which has been lost to time, the cap well-used by the owner thereafter, as evidence by the sweat staining in the dome where the celluloid shield once resided, with no size stamp or other markings, 243 mm x 270 mm x 135 mm. The cap exhibits slight discolouration in the white piping and green wool upper, the visor with wear along the edge and overall crazing, silvering loss evident on the cockade, extensive soiling and wear on the sweatband, with no fabric interruptions and mothing, remaining in fine condition.
