DESCRIPTION

This is an rare SS Visor produced during the very short period in 1938-1939 when colored piping was authorized for wear by Waffen-SS personnel.  It may have been made during the war, however, as the colored piping was more 'armylike' than the standard white piping and continued to be worn even after the regulations forbade it. This qualtiy visor cap features a very soft "doeskin" type wool, early insignia, and a very tight velvet band that travels the hat's circumference.  The velvet is the correct type with a short nap. The hat exhibits almost no wear, suggesting that it was either never worn or very seldom worn ... there is no sweat evidence on either the band or interior yellow silk.  Sweat diamond has broken away and is approximately 50% remaining.  Insignia is very bright, and hat has a high degree of matching frosting to both the eagle and skull.
