DESCRIPTION

Excellent quality visor cap as worn by the Luftschutzbund ranks from LS-Führer through LS-Generalluftschutzführer made by Erel (Robert Lubstein), one of the premier cap makers of the period. This high grade example includes the vented cockade for better ventilation. The cap is made of blue-grey tricot wool with a black band, and is piped with Luftwaffe style braided aluminum piping. The front of the cap features a hand-embroidered aluminum Luftschutzbund eagle with a swastika emblazed sunburst. A hand embroidered aluminum bullion winged wreath with vented Erel patent cockade is located on the cap band. Aluminum bullion chincords and the correct Vulkanfiber black visor. The interior is lined with cream colored artificial silk and features a slightly damaged sweatshield with the Luftschutzbund star in silver beneath. Calfskin sweatband is maker marked by Erel and is the "Stirndruckfrei" type. The forehead area portion of the sweatband shows a tear at the edge and shows wear and use. There is staining to the top lining as well from use. A fine, textbook example of the Air Defence Bund Leaders' cap.
