Gendarmerie Police "Meister Rank" Visor Hat
Top of cap is made of police bluish green wool with orange wool piping around top edge of cap, the cap band is dark brown wool and piped in orange. Fiber type visor with black finish is nice with some light wear. Chinstrap is the standard silver aluminum pattern. Police eagle is made of stamped aluminum and is the NCO/EM pattern, cockade is standard pattern. The Meister Rank "Senior NCO" could wear silver chinstraps. The top of the hat has some moth damage, just some small nips and they do not show up much, but there is one that is noticeable but not all that distracting, front and sides of hat and piping have no problems, just some wartime wear with no damage, looking at the front of the hat setting on shelf it looks great. The inside is lined with the brown oil cloth material with plastic sweat shield with maker printed on the shield in silver print and marked size 57, the plastic sweat shield has some cracks in the plastic but is all there, sweat band is made of the brown oil cloth material, that shows some wear but still nice with some of the brown finish than has worn off from being worn on the head. Overall this is a nice hat and looks nice and would go very nice on manikin head. Exc. $600.00
