Wehrmacht Cavalry Regiment 5 Visor Cap, by Erel
A pretty rare Wehrmacht 5th Cavalry Regiment Officers Visor Cap (Heer Aufklärer Schirmmütze), with original insignia and skull made by Erel Sonderklasse, Berlin. Constructed in field-grey wool, with the crown of the cap lined with golden yellow piping, including the top and bottom edge of the green wool cap band.
The insignia on the cap consists of a standard silvered aluminum Wehrmacht cap eagle, with the traditional Prussian skull in the centre, with a hand-embroidered cockade below in aluminum thread. The chin cord is crafted of twisted bullion cords and is attached to the cap via one silver pebbled button on each side.
The interior of the visor cap is fully lined, complete with a leather sweatband with markers mark “Erel Sonderklasse” nicely stamped in silver size 56, with a few sweat stains. Overall, the cap is in excellent condition for its age.
