Erel Panzer Visor

Article about: My one and only third reich visor. Wondered if you lads might share your thoughts on this slightly salty Erel Panzer Visor acquisition. This one is way out of my main area of interest. There

    how would one define a late war versus an early or mid war visor,? Ersatz material? did Erel change the lining or sweatband in later years? Always looking to learn more........cheers!
    Mr. Mint can show you, but the one I own is not as nicely made as yours. It is cheaper in all ways. The textile of the cap cover, the sweat band, the lack of foil
    stamp on the maker's mark, and, especially the poorly lacquered peak. I had one like this in 1971 in Portobello Road in London, England and then de accessioned
    it in 1973 or so. Mr. Mint is steeped in Lubstein-ology, which I am not. Some are even stamped with a date. I cannot recall in which year the patent for the
    forehead stitching mechanism was let and so forth. In 1938 or so.



    The Lubstein cap was the standard sold by the Heereskleiderkasse.

    The cap in my image here is a Hertlein, actually.

    Your cap is not retailed through the army cooperative, but via a Militaereffekten retail and or military tailor in Western Germany. That makes it more interesting than the
    run of the mill cap of this type.

    Hello birkie,

    here is some information on late war caps, a very interesting topic IMO. I always wonder how the cap makers managed to make decent headwear with all the shortages of material, men, machines etc. etc.:

    Odd Heer Infantry Schirmmütze

    Infantry Schirmutze (Visor Cap)

    WH Signals Officer Visor by C. Louis Weber

    Late War Schellenberg Artillery visor cap original or repro?

    Opinions please on erel visor

    Heer Officer's Nebeltruppe Schirmütze by Erel

    Luftwaffe Officer's Schirmmütze: Erel Privat

    and here: Cav Officer Schirmmutze

    Great examples Wolfgang. Thank you. One can easily see how many late war visor are discounted as fakes. It's very interesting to see the evolution from detailed high quality materials and workmanship to lower quality ersatz material and less refined production. Still the late war visors have their own appeal. Very Interesting

ID:	996404Another facet left out by many is the oversimplified idea that a firm offered one model of cap. Lubstein offered several, as did, in this case, Clemens Wagner. Image courtesy of Wim.
