NPEA leader's visor cap


Description

Exttremely rare visor cap worn by an NPEA (Nationalpolitische Erziehungsanstalt, known as Napola) leader.

A brown cap band bordered by a bullion piping. The same piping to the top. A tombak Waffen-SS eagle which left a clear mark to the cap. The eagle is from tombak and is RZM M1/17 maker marked. You can easily take it off since both prongs are bent not very accuratily.
Silvered tombak cockade with black swastika.

Fine silk lining with damaged celluloid. Sweat-band with signs of wear. Still very soft. Orange padding to the inside quite creme. 

A few moth bites but no real holes. Very rare.

One of two visor caps found lately. Never available on the market before!
