Third Reich NSKOV Veterans Festival Cap-These were worn by members of the NSKOV. They are commonly known as the “festival cap”. It is produced in navy blue wool that has some minor discoloration, wear and some tracking. There is a navy-blue piping around the upper perimeter of the cap. The stiffening ring has poked through the top panel in the back of the cap. The front peak has an NSKOV eagle in silver finished aluminum. There is a wreath with a metal cockade as well. The center band is machine woven and has woven swastika and images of the Kyffhauser Monument. The black visor has some minor fading and wear but is sound otherwise. It is unfortunately very loose. There is a black leather chinstrap that is in fine condition. The interior is in fine condition, being fully lined in a blue cloth. There is some minor wear and discoloration. There is a diamond shaped moisture shield with the Kyffhauser Monument and other writing. There is a tan ersatz leather sweatband which is in good condition but separate in a few spots from the cap. It also has a few small tears. There is a maker tag, stitched inside but backward so I cannot read it. A good restoration project or leave it as is for an inexpensive display piece!
