A German World War II Heer General's Visor in, overall, excellent condition. The exterior of this visor is made of a fine doeskin which has some moth nips and moth tracking throughout, as well as a slight discoloration from age patina. The visor's band is wrapped with a fine black wool doeskin which, like the upper portion of the cap, shows some moth nips and tracking as well as slight discoloration. The visor is trimmed with a braided gold piping that has some areas of discoloration from age and a few areas of fraying on the reverse, as well as under the chincord. The gold chincord is attached to the visor with two gold button braids, and shows no visible damage with an overall darker, even patina from age. A silver, electroplated brass Heer eagle is attached to the peak of the visor above the cockade. The eagle is near mint and exhibits a beautiful uncleaned look. The bullion cockade is made of silver wire, with a dark green background. The cockade is attached to the visor by skillful hand sewing. The cockade shows an even patina as well, and has a few areas which are loose. The bill of the visor is near mint and has small "spidering" on the black exterior. The checkered under side of the bill has a few small chips on the finish. The interior of the visor is lined with a high quality, cream lining that shows signs of heavy wear. The lining has fraying and discoloration from sweat and use, but is overall, still in very good condition. The original sweat shield is still partially present, but most has cracked and fallen out. The leather sweatband is pliable and has a few tears and small cracks. The visor is without any maker marks or sizing.
