WWII German Luftwaffe Hermann Göring Officer Candidate Private Purchase Visor Cap-This is an officer candidate version, as the chin cord has been upgraded to an officer bullion type. This is also a private purchase cap. It is produced in very soft, high quality, light weight, trikot weave blue grey wool that is in excellent condition. The owner removed the stiffening rings from the body of the cap so it has the feel of a crusher type cap. The pinch at the peak is extremely distinct. The white piping identifies it as belonging to a member of the Hermann Göring Division. The ribbed black center band is in excellent condition. The insignia is silver finished aluminum, all excellent. The chin cord is also in fine condition. The black vulkanfibre visor has some very minor crazing and one small spot of wear. The underside is finished in the often seen green hue. It is cross hatched as well. The visor and the grey leather sweatband have been restitched at some point. The interior is fully lined in gold rayon which is in fine condition with minor wear and discoloration from use. The rhomboid shaped moisture shield is mostly intact. The maker nomenclature is marked in silver. The cap is a size 56. A fine example overall!
