An SS-Allgemine Schirmmütze. The Visor and Totenkopf are original, the eagle is a reproduction. It is constructed out of black wool, with white wool piping. Attached to the obverse is a reproduction eagle (marked RZM M1/52) and original rare Flemish zinc Totenkopf. To each side is a peened on multi-piece steel black enamel painted side button that holds a crazed black leather chinstrap. There is a black lacquered visor peak with a brown underside. The interior features a wire stiffener and a light brown leather sweatband that has vent holes to the forehead. 60% of its stitching remains intact. The base of the interior has a quality silk ribbed lining commonly used by Erel. The clear diamond moisture shield remains intact. It shows the outside of the encircled “SS” runes. There is no interior RZM tag. There is no size marking but I would estimate it at 56. There is sweat staining and ageing throughout the interior. Minor oxidization to the steel pieces. The exterior is in excellent condition. A unique earlier RZM SS cap.
