A 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 40 mm 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, exhibiting wear along the edge and scuff marks, and is brown on the underside. The brown leather sweatband shows cracking and wear from active use. The inside of the cap is lined in a champagne-coloured cotton, with the dome brandishing a celluloid shield, size stamped "57" and is unnamed. There is tearing evident in the celluloid over the "7" in the size stamping. The cap shows only light contact on the visor, slight discolouration in the white piping, extensive wear on the sweatband and the tear in the the celluloid shield, with no fabric interruptions and moth holes, remaining in very fine condition.
