Germany, Schutzpolizei. A Schutzpolizei der Gemeinden (Municipal Protection Police) Officer’s Visor Cap

(Schutzpolizei der Gemeinden Einheitsmütze). This is a very well-preserved Schutzpolizei der Gemeinden (Municipal Protection Police) officer’s visor cap, constructed of smooth police-green wool with a dark brown wool cap band. Three bands of woven wine-red Waffenfarbe piping ring the cap, with a single band at the top and one each at the top and bottom of the cap band. Pinned into the peak of the cap is a zink tri-colour cockade with a red felt centerpiece, measuring 22 mm in diameter. The centre of the cap band is pinned with a silvered zink first-pattern police-style German national eagle clutching a mobile swastika, within an oval oak leaf wreath. The cap is flanked on each side by pebbled, silvered, magnetic metal buttons holding in place a decorative chinstrap constructed of braided and twisted silver aluminum bullion wire, neatly knotted at both ends. The chinstrap rests upon the cap’s visor, which is constructed of lacquered black vulcanfibre. The interior of the cap has a tan-coloured leather sweatband, 45 mm in width, securely stitched into the lining. The liner covers the entirety of the interior and is constructed of gold-coloured rayon. Stitched into the top of the interior is a transparent rhomboid moisture guard. The cap is unmarked and measures 246 mm (w) x 279 mm (l) x 170 mm (h). There is sporadic mothing and soiling of the exterior wool, and a slight tear in the sweatband, but the cap is in an otherwise near extremely fine condition.
