Description

White piped officer Schirmmütze (visor cap) for an officer of a infantry regiment. Made by the famous Erel company. Textbook example with period hand applied silver bullion officer insignia attached to the front of the hat. As you can see the visor had suffered a small moth attack, but once the visor is placed on a shelf it’s hard to actually see anything of it. This could have been a 1200 euro worth visor but the moths decided otherwise, so here it is for a steal! What I personally really like about this particular visor is the thickness of the white piping, which you can easily call ‘fat white piping’ and the typical saddle from that is well preserved. Stunning Erel made visor, would make a great display in any collection.
