LW Flak Schirmuetze - LW visor cap

Article about: Hi folks, Posting this Hoffman cap for your enjoyment. I picked this up for \\$75 back in 1976. It is marked inside the liner too but I am reluctant to yank the sweatband out for photos. NH

    Correction - paid $55 for it. Yes, for a high schooler it was pricey. But it has the link to Legion Condor so not too bad for a kid. NH
