    KM white NCO visor

    Hi guys,

    Would love to hear your opinion on this visor. From my limited knowledge - the white top and the insignia appear to be ok. It also appears to be a removable top, which is a good sign too. I think the grey leather sweatband is also ok. Chance of this being a good one?

    Cap base looks postwar with plastic rim on the visor ? Leather fixing is typical of
    postwar caps .
    Very dirty white front piece also , which doesn't fit the almost new white top ...

      Hi Nick,

      Thank you for your imput. When you say leather fixing is typical of post war caps - do you mean the liner? How do I differentiate a period one, from post -war?

      So much to learn!

        The leather band is sewn first on a corduroy like cloth and then the whole is sewn to the cap , like the Stirndruckfrei period caps : but never with corduroy material period .
