    Default Erel Schupo Officer's schirmutze

    As most of you know, I am a civil visor collector, with a strong interest in the visors of the Polizei. Most police officers you see are actually EM/NCO visors with Officer's chincords, as the higher-ranked NCO's were allowed to wear them. (The give-away is the lesser-quality wool, padding, and lining, as well as the one-piece flat NCO eagle).

    This is a true Officer's visor for an Officer of the Schutzpolizei (they used green Truppenfarbe). The hat is made by Robert Lubstein (Erel), and is their highest-quality class of hat, a "Privat", with the characteristic pale-green lining.

    The eagle is also a true-officers, being a 2-piece model, with polished highlights. While the Kokarde is vented, there are no grommets behind either the eagle or the cockade, something usually seen on mid- to late-war caps (which this one is.)

    This hat was never issued/worn, probably due to it's being a large size, approximately a 59-60:

    Thanks, guys. I only started collecting Polizei visors a few years ago. Back when I started collecting 30 years agi, I snubbed the Police visors, as I thought they looked "odd" with the cyclopean cockade on the peak (compared to all my Wehrmacht/SS visors). However, over the years I have really learned to appreciate them and the complexity of the Polizei overall.

    I'm still looking for the elusive "stonemint" Gemeinde and Feuerschutzpolizei Officer's visors (preferably double-vented doeskin Erels, of course!)
