Early Kreis Level Third Reich Political Leader Visor Cap-This is a very early Kreis level political leader cap with black piping (changed to white later on). It is produced in an olive brown lightweight cloth that is very clean. There are a few holes and nips (please see pics). The black piping, seen around the top panel and at the upper and lower edges of the brown velvet center band, is mostly intact. The eagle is tombak and it retains about 35% of the original silver finish. The cockade is enamel and is also missing some of the finish. The chin cord is a silver bullion type with silver finished pebbled metal buttons. The visor is brown vulkanfibre and in excellent condition. The underside is crosshatched and finished in an orange brown hue. The interior is fully lined in gold rayon that is excellent. The diamond shaped moisture shield is fully intact. The leather sweatband is in great condition and still remains soft and supple. It is perforated at the front. Underneath is a large RZM tag with the maker listed as number 1073 for Peter Kupper. The cap is a size 56. Very good and desirable!
