Re: Waffen SS Officer's Visor Cap
Sorry to say that in all likelyhood, this is a parts cap or frankenstein. As I suspected, the peak is glued on with some kind of black sealant. There are a few very untidy hand sewn stitches through the leather band and out to the exterior in that area but that's all. The lining is a total mess with little attempt at the proper way of pleating it and neatly sewing it to the frame of the cap. The TK definitely looks cast to me.
