    Default 1919-1945 Verein Visors

    This thread will be dedicated to soft headgear made from 191-1945, which, in collector-speak we call Verein visors.
    These were made for Veterans to wear at parades, reunions, and the like.
    These are not reproductions/fakes in the strict sense of the word--they were made specifically for the veterans, from the 1920's thru at least the mid-1950s.



    (For Verein Visors from 1946-1970, see this thread: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/imperi...visors-578251/ )


    This is an Imperial Verein visor that I missed out on--by one of my favorite makers, JC Kornacker of Hildesheim:

    This one probably dates to the early 1920's, given the unusual sweatshield:

    This is a Leib-Garde Husaren Regt (Potsdam) Garde-Korps visor. Poppy-red top, dunkelblau band, and yellow piping. Note the Sattelform.
    It would have been made in the mid- to late- 1930s:
