    Default Visor Cap ID help..pics

    Hello-

    I was hoping someone could help me ID this visor cap, I really donít know much about these caps. This was past down to me from a cousin who served in the US Army during the mid 1960ís and was station in Germany. I believe it to be from 1939 Ė 1945, but Iím not sure. I have spent countless hours searching for pictures of it online with negative results. It is not for sale, but I would like to know what branch/unit/rank it may have been issues to or be from. All advice appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Well for me its original.

    And the purpose / unit where it has been used is standing in the visor cap --> "nationalsozialistischer Soldatenbund".

    the visors pictured are very similar, but the main emblem is a little different as it has the German Cross and the Swastika.

    Correct, it is for the Soldatenbund. This organisation existed only for 3 years (36-39), when it was absorbed into the newly-formed
    Reichskriegerbund in 1939. The white piping signifies that the veteran was in the infantry. There were no formal uniforms per se, but they did were a dark blue double-breasted jacket with the Soldatenbund insignia pinned to the right breast.

    I did a thread on the Soldatenbund a while back--I will pull it to the top.
