A Deutsche Reichspost Schirmmütze für Offiziere by Peter Küpper (Peküro) of Wuppertal-Ronsdorf. Recently acquired from a Canadian collector. The visor is constructed of quality navy blue wool with bright orange waffenfarbe piping. The wool is in beautiful condition just the wee spot to the back of the piping. The center-band is made of a darker navy blue wool material. It has a nice reichspost cockade along with the reichspost national eagle insignia. The interwoven flatwire/bullion chinstrap looks beautiful and has well working slides. It matches the rest of the visor in color and condition. The chinstrap is fixed to the sides with two aluminum pebbled buttons, that are securely intact. The visor top has an internal wire stiffener, giving it that rigid and distinct shape you want to see on these. The black lvulcanfiber visor peek is textured and crazed and is secured with all its original stitching. The interior is lined in brown leather. The brown ersatz leather sweat-band is also in excellent condition, just minor crazing. It is joined to the back by a bow tie stitch. The top has a celluloid sweat diamond that is maker marked and sized "Wasserdicht Peküro Stirndruckfrei D.R.P 54". It shows quality workmanship and is nice and clean!
