A very clean example of the visor cap of an officer of the Third Reich Deutscher Reichskriegerbund, the German National War VeteransLeague (DRKB). The cap is constructed of high quality dark blue wool with a black machine woven cap band that features a design in which swastikas alternate with the Kyffhauser war veterans' monument. The cap carries the veterans' league cap badge and eagle. Silver chin cords across the visor indicate that the wearer held officer rank within the organization. The interior is fully lined and has the complete celluloid sweatshield that also features the monument design. Beneath the leather sweatband is the large cloth manufacturer tag. The original owner's initials are within the cap as metal monogram buttons affixed to the leather sweatband. The cap shows interior wear, but overall it is in very fine condition.
