    Excellent visor, great condition.....would it be rude to ask a ball park value, (as I am looking for one of these on my Police item wishlist, my late Opa was part of the 6th SS Police Regiment, so i collect a few police bits for that reason).

    I believe your quest will be quite difficult. I have been collecting a very long time and this is the first Police crusher I have ever seen. If you ask the wrong people, I am sure they can arrange to have one made for you!

    It is the only one I have ever seen as well. They are rare, even in period pictures.

    What an incredible crusher, congrats!!!

    Figured I add pics of it's brother with orange piping. I handled this cap at a military show in Germany. It had a green capband mounted loosely above the brown one. Pretty ugly. The job was period done of course, still I asked the dealer if there was more info about the owner and guess what, he had received EVERYTHING from the widow. The officer made it to Oberstleutnant of the Feldgendarmerie and was KIA retreating in late 1944/early 1945 (don't recall exactly). He had sold everything separately incl. the photo albums with this cap in wear.

    The cap didn't sell like this of course and I kept bugging him about it until he pulled out two blurry scans of it in wear that he had kept. We still couldn't agree on a price so I gave up at a certain point. Half a year later, I saw that he had delivered to a German auction house where this incredible piece sold for WAY LESS than an ordinary Infantry crusher.
