Third Reich Police General Private Purchase Visor Cap-This is an extremely scarce offering. It is produced in very soft, blue green doe skin wool that is in fine condition, showing slight wear from age and use. There is gold mesh piping around the top panel as well as above and below the brown badge cloth center band. The insignia consists of a two piece, gilt finished eagle (some verdigris) and an aluminum cockade with red felt bulls eye. The chin cord is toned gold bullion, held in place by a pair of gilt finished buttons. The vulkanfibre visor shows minor crazing and fading; it is cross hatched underneath. The interior features a gold rayon lining. This is in good condition, with minor wear, discoloration and writing in modern ink (see pics). The rhomboid shaped moisture shield is fully intact. It features the info of the manufacturer, eReL, as well as that of the distributor Hans Dübeck of Vienna. It is the “Standard” model eReL cap (the least expensive, below the Privat and Extra). The tan leather sweatband is in fine condition. It has the eReL Stirnschutz motto embossed into it. The sweatband is perforated at the forehead. It does not have a vented cockade. This may be because it is a Standard model or because of the location of the cockade being on the upper front panel.The cap is a size 56. A very unique and scarce offering!
