Original Item: Only One Available. This is a really attractive example of an early NSDAP Period Pre-WWII German Mining Association Union Schirmmütze (visor cap). The cap is of black wool construction, and is clean, showing moderate use. It features a nice cap band, with a standard Tri-Color medal cockade with red felt center, with a small NDSAP Reichsadler (State Eagle) on the front crown. There are three rows of red piping, the design used for the mining association throughout the war, though this early cap does not have the unique “Mining Tools” cap emblem, which was introduced later.
The visor/peak of the cap is in good condition, and is the standard ‘Vulcanfibre” used throughout the war, with a black finish and brown underside. It is also size marked 54 on the underside of the visor. Interior is very clean with a faced makers mark on the crown. The cap is lined in brown lightweight fabric, and has a brown oilcloth liner, which is somewhat degraded. Some of the stitching around the edge is also pulled. This pattern does not have any chin strap, and never had one installed.
A very nice example of a somewhat rare Pre-WWII cap, ready to display!
