EARLY HITLER YOUTH PEAKED CAP.
This very rare early style HJ cap was introduced into service in about 1933 and continued to be worn until about 1936 when a new model was introduced into service. Brown cloth body with early style brown cloth visor, the crown piping appears to be white but it is actually pale blue that has faded with age, this colour piping was worn by HJ Oberbann 4 and also by the Flieger HJ (Flying HJ). Complete with early style silver metal eagle, enamel HJ membership badge and leather chin strap. The interior features the typical early style brown oilcloth lining and sweat band. The cap shows wear as you would expect from such an early example but no moth or damage, this is a really nice hat with a lot of character and style. [Condition: Exc++]
