Looks like it could be good as to value I am not sure
I have some concerns....any chance of a couple of closer photos on the lining and under the sweatband. I know it pretty fragile so don't worry about the photos if you don't want to disturb it.
Is it your visor or one you are thinking of getting ?
Thanks for letting me know you are thinking about it. I understand your concerns. from the cap front I have doubts because:
The cap is in excellent condition but the sweatband is breaking up ? why ? also the wreath is larger than the cap band ? I usually take this as a warning the cap band should be 4.5cm in width and hence wider than the wreath, in this pic it appears nor to be the case.
Inside the cap the celluloid looks plastic, this may be the photo though, also got a size ticket under it ? unusual for TR officers cap. The lining also looks shiny and more modern appearance found in post war caps hence the question of more pics.
Not sure about the crown material either otherwise it's fine !
So not for me based on that analysisand I would want a hands on before I bought it but I would wait for more opinions as ever don't just go with what I think. Won't comment on the uniforms but i guess you have your doubts....
Hope that helps
I think you had answered my question. Something in this group remember me a 60's or 70's war movie and I'm only checking if there is profitable pieces here. The most interesting piece for me was this visor cap, but if it is questionable I have no interest in it.
that's uncanny cause I had ww2 movies in mind when I saw the pics of the group....just didn't write it !
This kind of paper sweat band is very fragile and is easily wrecked by decades of collectors ravaging such caps in search of the magic that is always beneath the sweat band.
The tunic and overcoat look perfectly real to me, and of much higher quality than a prop from a film. The Schulterstuecke are not attached properly.
the uniforms lokk ok to me as well.
