Germany, Wehrmacht. A Veterinarian Officer’s Visor Cap, by Mitzlaff & Bliedung, Named

(Schirmmütze). Veterinarian officer’s cap, constructed of smooth field-grey wool. The crown of the cap is fully trimmed with a band of bordeaux red piping, with two additional bands of identical piping located at the top and bottom of the cap band, itself constructed of dark green doeskin wool. Pinned into the peak of the cap is an aluminum Wehrmacht-style German national eagle clutching a wreathed mobile swastika, measuring 65 mm (w) x 26 mm (h), with all three of its reverse attachment prongs intact. Underneath the eagle, the cap band bears a zink tri-colour cockade within a silver aluminum wire oak wreath, measuring 64 mm (w) x 44 mm (h). The cap is flanked on each side by pebbled magnetic metal buttons holding in place a decorative chinstrap, constructed of multiple rows of twisted and rolled silver aluminum wire. The chinstrap rests upon the visor, itself constructed of vulcanfibre and presenting with a lacquered black obverse and tan-coloured reverse. The interior of the cap bears a 45 mm-wide tan-coloured sweatband securely held in place by a row of machine stitching. It is fully lined with an off-white rayon liner, the crown of which bears a transparent rhomboid moisture guard. The guard overlays a gilt maker’s mark of “MITZLAFF & BLIEDUNG, KOBLENZ”, while there is a paper insert bearing an owner’s name of “DR. RAUSCH”. The cap measures 250 mm (w) x 255 mm (l) x 166 mm (h). Minor exterior material fatigue is evident, there is some soiling of the interior liner, and there is evidence that the cockade and wreath have been replaced. The cap is in an otherwise near extremely fine condition.
