    A recent arrival from eBay de... a private purchase BGS schirmmutze from the early 1950's and made by 'Clewa' (Clemens Wagner). The cap is in superb, and virtually 'mint' condition. It still retains it's price tag and cardboard insert to keep its shape. Insignia show absolutely no sign of wear, and the only fault I can find is the very slightest loss of nap to the cloth just above the eagle. Click on images (twice) to enlarge

    The Bundesgrenzschutz were formed in in 1951, and by 1956 they had a strength of around 16,000 men. They used a variety of soft-skinned vehicles, armoured cars, A/T guns - as well as helicopters, in their role of securing the borders of West Germany against attack. The DDR for their part, claimed that the BGS was the re-birth of Hitler's SS.

    A really nice cap!

    So they continued using the traditional style of cap used in ww2 alongside the DDR. I remember seeing bundeswehr luftwaffe visors which looked very different to the ww2 counterparts.

    That is a very beautiful visor Steve and in a great condition. What a beauty to add to your collection. It deserves a nice spot to be seen.

    Really minty and desirable visor!
    Probably unissued hence the price tag still is on it.
    Congrats on finding that one my friend.
