DESCRIPTION

Visor cap for a police officer of the Gendarmerie. Typical waterproof orange top lining as found inside issued (enlisted) caps and mounted on the band is an enlisted/NCO style eagle and wreath. The sweatband, howver, is a Clemens 'Stirndrückfrei' type, which normally would not be found in an enlisted cap.  The original wearer may have elected to purchase an issue grade visor and had the sweatband upgraded.  The cap is constructed of police green fine wool with a medium brown wool band and orange wool piping indicating. Aluminum finished eagle and wreath on the band and the standard national cockade above. The black visor shows some age cracking to the finish.  It is maker marked by Clemens Wagner beneath the undamaged sweat diamond and marked size 59.  There is a tiny moth bite to the orange piping as can be seen in the photos, however due to its location, it's hard to notice. The top wool surface of the cap is faded while an area that was apparently covered is unfaded.  The visor shows very light wear if any and has survived in excellent, crisp condition.
