POLITICAL LEADERS HAT 1939 MODEL, KREIS LEVEL.
This is a scarce example of a political leaders hat with white piping which was worn only by the Kreisleiter (NSDAP town leader) and his staff. Superb looking hat with good high front with fine quality brown top and dark brown velvet center band, the cap is piped in white for Kreis level of political leadership. Complete with gold eagle and matching gold cockade, the gold cap cords are held in place by two small gilt metal buttons. The interior of the hat is in extremely nice condition with a gold artificial silk lining and plain celluloid patch, the sweat band is complete and it has just one small split, lifting the sweat band reveals the RZM tag. This is a really nice looking example in beautiful condition, they do not come much better than this one. [Condition: Near Mint]
