Luftwaffe Officer's Schirmmütze: Erel Privat

Article about: Here are some less than great photos of my late war Erel. It's lightly stamped as a Privat model, but very hard to see. The outside is almost mint, but the sweatband is ragged, sad to say. S

    Default Luftwaffe Officer's Schirmmütze: Erel Privat

    Late-war (1943-44) unissued Luftwaffe by Erel. Late-war give-aways are the non-trimmed visor; the matt silver piping; unfoiled logos; and the lack of any airvent system.

    Unfortunately, undated.

    Side views--I should have taken a comparison shot with my 1939 Erel, but the piping is almost gray.

    Interior. Unlike most LW visors, the eagle is original to this one. Erel always sewed their insignia thru the lining, and they used the characteristic hidden loop-stitch method. By this I mean that there is no external visible stitching, and only a few tack points:

    Thanks, Guys. They are a b**ch to find in this condition. IMO, LW officer visors are the best value on the net.
