Title Ordnungspolizei officer's peak cap
Nationality German
Period c 1933
Price £475.00

Unusual example, being essentially a Weimar period cap (green band as opposed to brown) with 3rd Reich 1936 pattern insignia. Maker marked Alkero, dot-punched into the leather sweat band. Vaguely legible name on paper insert.

For a description of this cap and colouring (ie the SS Police Division cap), see page 47, volume 7 of Mollo's SS Uniforms. There is also a catalogue entry with photo in the April 2009 Hermann Historica catalogue to the effect that Landespolizeigruppe 'General Goering' wore (before the war) such a cap with Luftwaffe insignia. (The cap in the catalogue entry was an NCO's cap listed as very rare with an estimate of 1,500 euros.)

This cap has had extensive field use and shows comensurate wear and tear.
