    Default Hermann Goring Visor

    A recent pick-up for me--a visor for an EM/NCO of the Hermann Goring Division.
    Although unmarked, this one is actually made by Schellenberg of Berlin. The distributor is Carl Derwig, also of Berlin (there are many Derwig repros on Ebay--this is not one of them).

    What makes this visor somewhat rare is that most HG division hats you see are contract caps (the ones with the Lieferjahr stamp), while this one is private purchase.

    This is a wartime cap, in that it has a 1-piece visor, with the typical Schellenberg Presstoff sweatband, with their characteristic perforation pattern.

    Hat shows only minimal use, and most assuredly was a walking-out visor. Only one small spot of mothing on the bottom wool trim (which is an Eskimo wool, as compared to the quality Trikot blaugrau of the body).

    Hope you all like it as much as I do:

    That's in fantastic condition, I've been to Bahnhof Friedrichstr many times and i don't think this hat maker is still there
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks, guys. A few more pics. The wool felt behind the sweatband is characteristic of most Schellenbergs.

    Nice cap mate I could see myself getting into these a little bit, if I can ever tear myself away from the steel pots.

    I came in here expecting to see a bad fake of Hermann's own extravagant headwear

    Take a break from them when you get an SS
    It's a shame this isn't in a museum
