    Default 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.

    Rayon piping?

    I will gladly throw in a comment. Wonderful cap as far as i can see, even i do not collect this part of the 2ww.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Thank You again Ben and TrondK for your interest . I think there is no interest from other members because it's a common ss cap . Nevertheless, in searching through the web I found that the maker ALMI was rare with surviving caps, although he was prolific in making caps especially for the luftwaffe during the conflict . I have read an interesting thread by Stonemint about Almi posted a long time ago.https://www.warrelics.eu/forum/cloth...y-visor-21095/
    Also, Almi used different logo.Name:  Almi_L.jpg

    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.

    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.
