ss nco cap
nco visor cap for a small guy / size 53 . It looks like a size for a child of 12 years old,I am always surprised with the small size of our parents they were so skinny with a small head .

Those guys were definitely physically smaller than our generation. Strange but true, it wasn't that long ago after all?!
I really like this cap. It closely resembles a standard issue Heer service cap which would make a lot of people nervous and for good reason but I think this one is legit. Just looks right to me and to have the Almi mark, size and most of all, the date, is just great.
Thank You, very much for your input Ben.Yes, the piping is rayon.
Thank You again.
I thought so, thanks!
You just need to find a small display head now!
Surprised no one else has commented.

I like it a lot,
With the going prices of SS pieces no SS item is 'common" anymore I feel. I could not afford such a visor on my budget and find yours a delight, NCO or not.
Well done and congrats.
Thank You Dave for the nice words .
Speaking for myself, I decided not to comment as with this item I don't trust my own opinion. I just can seem to come to a definitive answer as to what exactly this is: basically I just don't know if this is a original SS visor or a Heer converted to a SS visor with original insignia. I will say, however, all components appear to be from the Third Reich era, and I see nothing on the exterior to cause hesitation. It is also a positive sign that Ben seems to like it. Though not flawless, it's still one of great value and merit.
