Product Description: This Ortgruppenleiter Political Leaders Visor is a very nice piece of headgear for an NSDAP political leader. It’s a beautiful visor, with exceptional eye appeal. The exterior of the cap is made from a top-quality brown Tricot wool, with a diagonal weave. There are no holes or visible moth damage, and only very minor discoloration to the crown of the visor, as well as some light marks on the side folds. The cornflower blue wool piping is virtually perfect, with no fading. The insignia on this cap is gorgeous, with bright original shine to the gold finish on the eagle. The cockade and wreath also retain fantastic original finish, with no damage to the enamel, and only light age toning to the silver on the cockade. The dark brown cap band is pristine. The chin cord is intact, and extremely attractive, with amazing patina. Inside, this Ortgruppenleiter Political Leaders Visor is lined in tan rayon, which shows light staining. The celluloid sweat diamond is intact. The leather sweat band is complete, with light tears, mostly in the forehead area. There is no maker mark. It’s possible that there is an RZM label with maker code under the sweatband, but the sweatband is slightly stiff, and we can’t lift it to look for the tag.This Ortgruppenleiter Political Leaders Visor has a stunning look. The condition rates as a very strong excellent plus.
Historical Description: The visor cap (Schirmmütze) was an important part of the headgear worn by German uniformed military, civil, paramilitary and political organizations during the Third Reich. This was the standard cloth headgear worn as a part of the service uniform. Visor caps were worn outdoors, as well as indoors, and were often required to be worn by all personnel on duty. Visor caps were made in versions specific to each organization and were often further differentiated through the use of insignia, colored piping, or style of chin cord, to indicate rank, role or branch. The insignia used on these caps ranged from simple stamped metal emblems, to elaborate hand embroidery. Visor caps were issued to enlisted soldiers and NCOs in the military and in some other organizations. Officers had to purchase their own hats, and lower ranks could choose to purchase caps that were of a higher quality than the rather basic, issue examples. The private purchase caps were generally made in very high quality, with fine materials. A wide variety of fabrics were used, from Trikot and doeskin, to heavy wool, or even lightweight white fabric for summer wear. In the military, issue of these caps was generally suspended shortly after the outbreak of the war, but they continued to be worn by some troops until the end of the war.
