    Default Waffen SS NCO's Schirmmütze

    Hello Everyone,

    Came across this visor for sale, curious to hear some opinions on it. The gentleman says it along with some flags and armbands came from his late father in law. I'll include the pics of the other items on this thread if the mods don't mind some KM items in the SS board.

    I dont think its an original SS visor cap.

    Cheers, Patrick

    I have moved this to the correct forum for cap questions. Please post the other items in the relevant forums, thanks.

    Pat: note the Dutch maker.

    This cap is interesting.

    Cheers, Ade

    I DO believe this could be an authentic Dutch-made SS visor cap, and bares a certain similarity in materials, visor etc. to some I've seen in the past. Much closer pics are a must...

    Arran is right, it is a genuine Dutch cap. I had one from a Canadian vet from the same maker. It is pictured in Michael Beaver's book on SS Headgear.

    These Dutch made items can be very tricky. I made some really foolish statements about a tunic with foreign made insignia a few months back and was very embarrassed when better informed members corrected the record. It's therefore a really good thing that we have very informed members like Arran, d'alquen and Ade to make sure that these foreign made items get the correct designation.

    I also like the look of this cap.

    No doubt in my mind that this is an original cap. I would be very interested in buying it because of my Dutch family roots.

    I am sorry for my comment, I thought it was a fake but I am glad I was wrong. I never knew of these Dutch caps.

    Cheers, Patrick
