A Diplomatisches Schirmmütze für Offiziere by Clemens Wagner. It is constructed out of black-blue doe skin wool, with silver aluminum wire piping. Attached to the obverse is a silver aluminum/flatwire bullion Diplomatic cap eagle and a silver aluminum/flatwire, black and red rayon, bullion cockade and wreath. To each side is a peened on multi-piece aluminum/steel based silver washed pebbled side buttons that hold the silver interwoven bullion chin cord in place. There is a black lacquered crazed visor peak with a cross hatched tan cream underside. The interior features a dark brown leather sweatband that has vent holes to the forehead and an oval aluminum and black painted “H” button (it appears as though there was another one beside it at some point). The base of the interior has a gold colored silk lining under a fragile clear diamond moisture shield (with the odd crack) over the Clemens Wagner manufacturers logo which reads, in dark brown: “CW Erstklassig Gesetzl. Gesch.” and “Erich Sietnerl Riesa-La”. The interior has typical sweat staining and age wear throughout. The exterior is in gorgeous shape just the odd catch to the piping. A nice rare visor missing from most collections!
