The front also features a dark brown lacquered visor peak with a cross hatched brown underside. To the sides are two peened on multi piece aluminum/steel gold gilded pebbled side buttons that hold the golden interwoven bullion chin cord in place.

Underneath the sweatband is a brown/white “Tuchmütze” (Cloth Cap) oilcloth RZM tag that is maker marked “4”. The clear moisture shield is lost to time. The exterior is worn with moth holes and the interior sweat band is very crazed. A high level visor!
