LW Flieger/Fallschirmjäger Schirmmütze (Ad. Höper)
Very nice EM/NCO Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger/Flieger visor cap or 'Schirmmütze' from a scarce maker.
The overall condition of the Schirmmütze is good. It has a nice shape and the exterior fabric is, apart from a few small surface moth bites, free of damage. The visor cap is complete with (in our opinion replaced) early aluminium insignia.
The inside shows signs of wear. Both the sweatband and leather visor are present. Behind the sweatband on the visor side is an extra piece of fabric, which was probably used for a small repair. The leather sweatband is marked/named on the inside.
The sweat diamond is also present and marked by the scarce maker 'Ad Höper' from 'Celle'. There was a large airbase at 'Celle', which was used by the Luftwaffe throughout the entire war. The size of the visor cap is approx. 56/57.
Overal a very nice Luftwaffe visor cap
